Bertram is very neat and tidy, and Alan is messy and unkempt. However, these two neighbors are best friends. Bertram’s new cat, Pierre, doesn’t like to sit on the pristine couch, or eat from the beautiful china, or sleep on the designer cat bed. Pierre would rather hang out with Alan and eat scraps. Bertram learns to allow some less-than-perfect things in his house to accommodate Pierre. And Alan tries to clean up his house and tidy some of the clutter. Together they find a way to compromise and make the perfect environment for Pierre the cat.
I love this funny story about different people coming together for something they both enjoy, like owning a cat. I love the positive messages about friendship, plus the story is just entertaining.
The illustrations are beautifully in keeping with the mood of the story. The lines of the artwork are a little messy and chaotic, even impressionistic at times. I love the bright colors and interesting scenes.
Such a fun book!
