Blucy the Blue Cat

The Purrball in me says “power to you!” to the strong-willed Blucy the Blue Cat. (Purrball would like her color choice, too, lol!) On the list of negatives, the typeface has a large outer glow to it that detracts from the beautiful illustrations. The rhymes are long-winded. The biggest drawback to the book comes along with one of the pluses: I love that the author ends with some fun facts for kids, but anyone drawing attention to the heaviest cat on record should really take pause: no cat would do that in nature and it is not ok for us to marvel at that fact. If you could take away these negatives, the book has much to be said for it!
