" A short and sweet story with lovely illustrations! " said.

"Oliver is a house cat who loves his quiet little world with no other animals. He is quite unpleasantly surprised when his owner brings home Marshmellow, a small white bunny, to join the household. In fact, he thinks he wants to pounce. Over time though, he finds himself accepting the young Marshmellow, and by the end they are good friends.

This is quite a bit of text for a picture book, making it appropriate for preschool into elementary. Kids not able to sit for 4-5 sentences per page at least might get a little squirmy, but my girls, ages 4 and 7, found the story delightful and were totally entranced by the tale, and by the sweet and simple hand-drawn pictures.

Of note, this is a nonfiction story of animal friendships rather than fiction. It is a great starting point to discuss fiction versus nonfiction, friendships and animal pets. 5 stars for our family.

" This book was overlong, and I could have especially lived without the very twee poetry.The minimalist charcoal illustrations and understated characterization of both Marshmallow and Oliver were captivating, though. It was oddly thrilling to experience such a raw, tactile sensation of warmth and fuzziness from such simple drawings. " said.

" Cute story about a developing friendship between a cat and a bunny. Lovely illustrations but TONS of text. 5-6+ " said.

" I just want to buy a bunch of copies of this book and hand it to people on the street . . . " said.

" Adorable story about the unlikely friendship between a cat and a rabbit. Newberry's drawings are fresh and beautiful. " said.

" Oh, I loved this! Mostly because I've had cats and bunnies together and seen just how they interact. She captures perfectly the feel of both creatures in how she draws and writes about them. I could see that she based this off of real life before I even read that she had. Such a cute story! This is one to share with my girls. :) " said.

" A sweet story about interspecies friendship (based on a real-life pair) as Miss Tilly, owner of Oliver the cat and new Marshmallow the bunny, composes poems on her typewriter:Birdies twitter, chirp, and tweet; Moo-cows moo, and lambkins bleat; Some creatures bellow, others bray; Some hoot, or honk, or yap, or neigh; Most creatures make annoying noises, Even little girls and boyses.Newberry's charcoal drawings are sublime.
