Know someone with a bad case of the bathrobe blues? For one lonely soul, an anonymous note changes everything - and shows that a little love can go a long way.

Poor Rat, his friends haven’t called in ages. He sits in his bathrobe all day and does nothing but sip cold tea. Then a mysterious letter arrives in a bright yellow envelope, and everything changes. Wonderfully detailed, childlike artwork brightens this wry little tale of an act of friendship that uplifts one lonely soul - and soon has a whole community feeling its happy effects.

Anthony France, who has published three books for children in the U.K., works as a public relations executive. He says, "I found the idea of a little rat suffering from the bathrobe blues an irresistible start to the story. The rest was based on a friend’s real-life experience. Many of my stories are about getting along with friends and neighbors, and FROM ME TO YOU shows how we have to work at our friendships and not take them for granted." Tiphanie Beeke has illustrated books and greeting cards and has worked as an interior designer for children. She says, "What I love about illustrating is being able to create an imaginary world on paper, and From Me to You gave me a great opportunity to do that. I love the texture and color I see in nature and hope to capture some of it in my paintings.

Seeing his friends in need erases Rat's self-pity, and British author France underscores this point in a touching but not heavy-handed, scene: "If I were a real friend," says Rat, "I would have visited [Bat] before.
