    One thought on “Friend or Foe?”

    1. I loved this book. "He was wondering if—after all those hours of looking at each other—he and the cat were friends."That's the question the mouse asks and the central question of the book. How it's handled and that surprising reversal are outstanding. Not to mention Tolstikova's illustrations that play with size and scale and distance and proximity in a way that perfectly mirrors the theme of opposites in the story.

    2. An enigmatic picture book about a palace cat and a cottage mouse who see each other at a distance. An engaging and well paced story, in both text and illustrations, that will keep young readers speculating about the two points of view. The conclusion, although open-ended, is satisfying and would also provide inspiration as a writing prompt.

    3. What the WHAT?! All that time and NO answer? Ok, mouse, you better trot your little self BACK down that tower and FIGURE this out, pronto! Though the picture of the cat flying through the air in total surprise was pretty priceless, you gotta admit.

    4. This is a story about a mouse and a cat. Or is it an introduction to Game Theory for kids? One or the other. Tolstikova's illustrations in her graphic memoir, A Year Without Mom, were brilliant and she brings the same black and white with pops of colour scheme to this book.

    5. The title questions remains unanswered in this children's book. The mouse wants to know if the cat is friend or foe. But the mouse never finds out as the cat and mouse switch their homes by accident. The art is great and helps add to the tone of the story. I don't see this as a very good bedtime story though. It'll push your kid into an early quarter-life crisis.

    6. I love the gray-tone illustrations with a splash of once-in-a-while color .What is the purpose of this book? Once the mouse gets to where he wants to be, why doesn't he follow through? (No need to answer, I just find this book frustrating.)

    7. Kind of dry humor.The cat is in the palace and the mouse outside. Each night they sit and look at each other.The mouse works very hard to get into the palace to see the cat. When he does, the cat falls out the window and outside the palace wall. Now, they've switched places.

    8. great illustrations, and a clever theme, with a question mark endinga very thoughtful book, with a periodic surprise or two.

    9. Love the perspectives of this book. Great for a discussion/debate on friend or enemy how does the story really end?

    10. This book is subtly hilarious. I loved the odd ending! Illustrations very appropriate to the story and tone!First Line: "This is how it was."

    11. This quirky tale from Canada asks a simple question that many of us may have pondered when considering individuals and events in our lives. A tiny mouse spends time looking at the nearby tower where a cat often perches. The mouse wonders if the cat is its friend, and finds a way to enter the tower and seek an answer to its question. The creature never really does get a response since the cat leaps at it surprise and tumbles from the tower. As cats do in these sorts of stories, it lands on its fe [...]

    12. This is an odd little book about a cat and mouse who only ever see each other from afar. Each of them wonders whether the other is a friend or a foe, but when each one gets the courage to go find out, they just end up switching places. The illustration are interesting, but unusual, and the story left me with an unsettled feeling. It would be interesting to talk about with elementary school kids who might be able to understand the "missed connection" storyline, but I thought it would go right ove [...]

    13. I am not a fan of books without endings, and this is one such book. The reader is left to draw his/her own conclusion about the relationship between the cat and the mouse. Overall, the book has a folktale like quality as well.

    14. I liked the story but was left a little dry with the ending. There was no closure. The pictures were mostly greyscale, which might be hard for a little one to follow.

    15. A simple, quirky tale with understated but striking illustrations. The ambiguity may leave some readers scratching their heads but I find it delightfully provocative.
