About the Book and Author / Illustrator

This is a feel-good story with a sprinkling of magic and an inspiring female character called Ray (short for Rainbow) that will appeal to readers aged 7-10 years by Laura Ellen Anderson.

We sent the first book in the series to our young reviewer and also this book, which is the second one: Eye of the Storm.

They are both published by Farshore whom we thank for sending us the copies for Ella to enjoy reading.

Book Review

It made me feel I will be ok

I thought the first Rainbow Grey story was an amazing book that inspires young girls like me. Rainbow was my most favourite character ever!

I love that she doesn’t care she has a down side and she just gets on with it as others have it worse. She is trying her hardest and she is so kind. It made me feel I will be ok.
So, I really wanted to read the second Rainbow Grey book Eye of the Storm.

I also really enjoyed Eye of the Storm. It was also really inspiring making you think you can be who you would like to be. It was such an exciting story. I loved how in the story Rainbow Grey problem solved through finding the clouds. My favourite character was called Droplett because she was so kind to everyone.

I think people aged 8 to 10 would like this book, I really like the illustrations as they make it easier to read and they really bring the story to life.
