Felix the Cat
Fluff and Puff
Although all the 'You and Me' books are based on the BBC series for the under fives, the quality of both text and illustrations of these brief tales is variable. The strongest in my view are Market Mouse and Felix the Cat: in the former, a timid mouse has a nasty surprise when she ventures forth one night, whilst Felix, a molly-coddled moggy, achieves his desired measure of independence and diet of fish by swapping places with Fenella from the fish and chip shop, in the latter. Both these titles claim to help the young listener in 'recognizing and practicing' a letter sound but happily this aspect of the books is unobtrusive.
