The Lovereading4Kids comment
How a younger brother finds the skills he needs to match all the clever things his older brother does is magically resolved when Raffi goes up, up and away with an exceptional blue cat. It’s a dark, dark night when Raffi and the strange cat who appears in his bedroom take off into the night. Together, they light up everything around them – even the stars. Michael Foreman’s night time sky-scapes with their exceptional range of blues provide a perfect background and complimented by a lyrical story from the pen of a major talent in children's literature. It's fun.
Blue by Michael Rosen
Raffi’s brother Jake can do everything. He can run very fast, jump very high, dance and draw elephants. If only Raffi were good at something too… One evening when Raffi can’t sleep, a magical flying cat called Blue appears and takes him on an adventure through the night sky. They fly off together into the darkness and as they fly, Blue points at shop signs and street lamps and they light up. They fly higher and higher, spreading light, until they even light up the stars!The next day, thoughtful little Raffi feels just a little bit different. He is happier after his wonderful dream, and has more confidence. He even finds himself reassuring his brother that walking home in the dark is no problem at all.
