Blue Ethel

Written and illustrated by Jennifer Black Reinhardt. Ethel is old, she is fat, she is black, and she is white. She is also a cat who is very set in her ways…until the day she turns blue! BLUE ETHEL shows readers that being different and accepting change can be a good thing.

Praise for Blue Ethel:

“Highlights the power of friendship . . . Ethel may not win any cat marathons, but she’ll win hearts young and old.” —Kirkus Reviews

“There is a gentle humor to Ethel’s story, with a cozy, rhythmic text that moves the readers along in a steady but soft pace. Ethel, with her rotund, scratchily lined figure, lumbers through delicately dappled line and watercolor scenes . . . This is an easy addition to a cat-themed storytime, but be ready to break out the chalk and head outside afterward.” —The Bulletin for the Center of Children’s Books
