Once in blue moon, a special pet comes along.

When Mandy adopts the best cat at the shelter, she doesn't realize it has a big secret and an even bigger personality.


Blucy is a cat but a cat like no other, as Mandy found out when she brought her home from the pound.

Blucy: The Blue Cat is a story about a cat who wont eat normal food and turns blue, thus camouflaging herself from Mandy. Mandy doesn’t give up and still tries to train and feed Blucy until one day she has an idea and she gives the cat some blueberries to eat – something blue!

From that day on Blucy rarely causes trouble and comes when Mandy calls her.

This is a wonderful little story brought to life by the vibrant illustrations used through out the book, it was a delight to read and my 4 year old love it!

At the end of the story there are some cat-tastic facts and a hidden pictures page – which is a great wee added bonus.

I am Fee, a 30 -something SAHM bookworm! I love to read, and will read almost anything and everything. I am not afraid to try new genres of books and my main genre is horror, thriller.
