I was lucky enough to receive a copy of “Blucy” for review from the author her self, Julia Dweck! Blucy is a cat that Mandy picks out at the pound. Blucy is not like other cats. Her fur tuns blue with her attitude. She is also a picky eater. She only eats blue foods. The is hard to train and can camouflage around blue things or places to hide. She causes some trouble by writing on the walls in crayon, shredding up the laundry, and shredding up the birthday presents. Mady figures out a way to get Blucy to mind. Their bond grows even stronger. This is a cute story told in a rimming theme. Like a poem!
This super cute book is directed at children ages 5-8. This adorable book engages kids with rime and wonderful illustrations. Plus the story is funny but in a cute since!

Would I recommend this book? Yes! My daughter loved “Blucy!” She had me read it to her twice and she laughed listening to all the things Blucy did in rime. She also loved looking at the pictures. This was a super cute read. We really enjoyed it and it kept my daughter engaged.
