Product Description

Review

Desmond s captivating drawings ... depict the best and worst in what will be highly recognizable cat behavior. With it s nod to [other tales] of friendship and differences, [the story] hits all the familiar beats. But it does so with a generous dose of humor, adept storytelling and spot-on detail. --New York Times September 2012-----Jenni Desmond has obviously had ringside seats at many a catfight, her illustrations perfectly capture the absolute frenzy of a cat-scrap...The way the book ends actually made Charlotte practically jump up and down on the spot with glee. --Read it Daddy September 12--It s been a while since I fell in love at first sight, but that s precisely what happened when I saw the front cover of Red Cat, Blue Cat by debut author/illustrator Jenni Desmond. The cats gorgeously grumpy expressions, the boldness of the image as a whole, the delicate detailing of the birds in flight it made me catch my breath, nod and smile. And on turning the pages my sense of excitement and delight only grew. Red Cat, Blue Cat ...turns out not only to be beautiful but also witty, original, and jam-packed with joie de vivre; a gentle and humorous exploration of identity, envy and friendship. --Playing by the Book September 2012---Themes of jealousy and identity intertwine in this cleverly designed book… Airy background scenes with precisely detailed household objects accompany naïf illustrations of the mutually envious felines. At least one tiny mouse can be found on each spread, and debut talent Desmond's often hilarious artwork expands on her understated prose with great success…With tongue-in-cheek humor, Desmond kneads at the complex emotions underlying friendships, without overemphasizing the message about appreciating oneself. -- --Publishers Weekly October 2012----

there was plenty to amuse in this quirky book - the cats falling down the stairs, the strange items of blue food that red cat eats to try and turn blue and vice versa for blue cat. The red clothes that blue cat puts on to turn red, and red cat rolling in blue paint.....The illustrations are quite unusual in a pre-school book - the cats are not your traditional soft, fluffy, cute representations - they are splodgy and rough and more child-like in their nature which makes this book stand out from the crowd. -- --Bookaholicmum, December, 2012--- --

this book really does deserve the praise it s getting. --Rainydadmum, January, 2013

I often give books as children's presents and have tended to stick to the `old favourites' but was drawn to this book by the vibrant front cover and was not let down! A really fantastic find, captivating, humorous and playful illustrations tell the endearing story of the two differing cats. My 3 old niece adored the illustrations, pointing things out on every page, giggling as she explained to me what each cat was up to. The illustrations mean that younger children can enjoy the book before they can read while older children will appreciate the tale of friendship and enjoy the twist at the end. Lots to talk about on each page and don't forget to look for the mice! A perfect book for children and a firm addition to my list of favourites, I will certainly be looking out for future titles by Jenni Desmond.

Red Cat, Blue Cat is a witty story about two feline friends told with the most beautiful illustrations. Each turn of the page takes the reader on the ups and downs and twists and turns of red and blue cat's friendship. This book is a perfect christmas present for children who will no doubt cherish the book for a very long time after the festive season.

This little book is utterly captivating with a mischievous undertone to the illustrations. A review of words can't do it justice you really have to see inside the book to appreciate its originality. There are so many little things going on in the background; each time you read it you notice something else. I couldn't stop smiling!

This is a really special book. A lovely combination of a great story with beautiful illustrations. I loved the book, as did my 4yr old god-daughter. I will be buying the book for lots of small people that I know for Chirstmas! I am looking forward to the next in the Jenni Desmond collection.

This is a such a charming story with the unique and delightful drawings really bringing the characters to life. The cheeky cats and the moral of the story are perfect for children ages 4 to 7 (and is fun for adults whilst reading it too!). Looking forward to more books from Jenni Desmond

A superbly told and magnificently illustrated story. The illustrations are beautiful, heart warming and hilarious and Jenni Desmond captures the emotions in these two cats superbly. This is certainly a book worth experiencing for adults and children alike.

This is a stunning book which combines a lovely fun story with beautiful illustrations. A great choice for children but a keeper for adults.. I'm 27 and I love it!

Highly recommended! - I will be buying another for a friend's baby.

I just bought "Red Cat Blue Cat" for my nephew and he absolutely loves it! The illustrations are just beautiful and the creative story makes it a real pleasure for grown ups to read/enjoy too. I can't wait for the next book!
