Synopsis

Made by Raffi by Craig Pomranz

Raffi is a shy boy who doesn' t like noisy games and is often teased at school. But when he gets the idea of making a scarf for his dad' s birthday he is full of enthusiasm, even though the other children think it is girly to knit. Then the day draws near for the school pageant, and there is one big problem - no costume for the prince. And that' s when Raffi has his most brilliant idea of all - to make a prince' s cape. On the day of the pageant, Raffi' s cape is the star of the show.

Reviews

Shortlisted for Little Rebel's Children's Book Award This book is for every child who has ever felt different. Juno This picturebook should find a place on school library shelves. It provides useful material for individuals or small group discussions on diversity, as it celebrates diversity. -- Jane Loder The School Librarian A theme that has been tackled before of course, but Raffi wears its message lightly without resort to mawkishness or sentimentality. A delightful book to share with a KS1/younger KS2 class which should provoke interesting discussion. English Association Vibrant, affectionate and inclusive, this is a book which celebrates difference and shows that being creative is cool. A positive story to share with a group of children, it doesn't labour the message that everyone should be valued, whatever their talents. Reading Zone Looks special, very special indeed! Rhino Reads It's an excellent story, perceptive and thoughtful, about being confident with yourself, about not being swayed by others and doing what you think is right and handling opposition
