Kid’s Book Review: Fletcher and the Rainbow

About the Book and Author

This is a lovely picture book for young children featuring the adorable fox character called Fletcher. In this story he is searching for the end of the rainbow he can see in the distance. The gentle story written by Julia Rawlinson is beautifully illustrated in soft pastels by Tiphanie Beeke. As you scroll down to the review by our four year old reader and his mother you will see some examples of the pictures. The Fletcher stories are all published by Graffeg.

Book Review

My favourite part was the sparkly rainbow Fletcher made

I like this story about a fox looking for the end of the rainbow. Its an interesting story.

The pictures have lots of colours and I really liked them.

My favourite part was the sparkly rainbow Fletcher made.

I am going to make a rainbow like Fletcher’s too when I go to the park.

Mums thoughts: Another beautiful book from Graffeg. It is lovely quality with beautiful painted illustrations which bring the story to life. The story was entertaining and great for those like us who love nature.
