Review by Stacey

One autumn day the clouds were dark and the rain came pouring, then the sun appeared bringing with it a beautiful rainbow. Fletcher the Fox had never seen anything so beautiful and decided he needed to find it and help it shine forever.

He went through the woods, past the apple trees, and headed to the stream where it looked like it was being washed away. There Goose told him to have a look near the rabbit’s burrow as that is where it ended. But Fletcher was too late, the rainbow had disappeared, but then he had an amazing idea how he could bring the rainbow back to life.

Fletcher and the Rainbow is the sixth book in a series all about Fletcher the Fox, I recently reviewed another in the series, Fletcher and the Caterpillar.

I love how adorable Fletcher is and how caring and passionate he feels about life and nature. The illustrations throughout are truly spectacular with some pages representing the clouds and bad weather being dark and others featuring the rainbow being bright and cheery. There is even a page that glimmers.

The plot is really beautiful and I know lots of children that are fascinated by rainbows and wish they would stay forever to brighten up the sky. This book will give them the imagination to create their own. The book is completely joyful and captivating. I’m sure it will be a big hit with youngsters, and parents/guardians too.

Author Info

Julie Rawlinson fletcher and the rainbow

I grew up in London, close to Richmond Park – a beautiful deer park big enough to get lost in, where I got to know lots of the characters who have since popped up in my stories and poems.

I have always loved writing – I enjoy the sound and rhythm of words, and many of my poems for children have been published in anthologies. My One Week of Poems series of short ebooks covers Christmas, dinosaur, garden, space, football and spooky poems, which are gathered together in the One Week of Poems Box Set. The most recent books in the series are One Week of Seaside Poems and One Week of Pirate Poems.

When I had my children I started writing stories for picture books, and my first book, Fred and the Little Egg, was published in 2005. Since then I have written lots of stories about animals including rabbits, mules, dragons, hedgehogs, squirrels, mice and a kind-hearted but easily confused fox.

I have been lucky enough to work with some wonderful illustrators, and my books have been published in many languages.
