Some of you may not know this about me but I love to read. When I had the time I would read for hours. I would get lost in a book and not go to sleep until the morning. I don't really have the time to read myself but I am trying to pass down my love of reading to my children. To me there is nothing better than getting lost in a book.
So here goes one of two book reviews I will be doing. Who knows you may see more book reviews in the future.

I received a copy of this EBook complimentary in exchange for a fair, honest, non-compensated review.
This is my first time reading a Julia Dweck book but my children have tons of books. I'm always looking for new books tor read at bed time but I like them to be small books that are quick and easy to read. I don't like very wordy books because obviously the more words the longer it takes to read and they lose interest very quickly.. It has 21 pages but there are not a lot of words on each page. The story flows effortlessly from one page to the other and draws you in.
I found this story attention grabbing, humorous, and extremely entertaining. My four youngest children were glued and didn't say a word during the entire story. That's a really big deal. I can always tell when they lose interest because one (hopefully not all of them) will start talking or fidgeting. Thankfully that was not the case with this story even as an adult I looked forward to turning the page, to see what antics Blusy had in store.
The illustration by Erika LeBarrre is adorable and vibrant. Each page filled with colorful pictures some even made my chuckle. They both do such a great job on the story and illustration a blue cat doesn't seem impossible even to me.
It is a available on Amazon for $3.99 and can be read on your computer from Amazon's Cloud Reader. This service is free and can be used on or off line. Stay tuned for your chance to win your own Blusy EBook.
