It’s Bluey! But...
Reviewed in Australia on 1 January 2020
As a die hard Bluey fan it kills me to say this, but this book is poorly written and the glow in the dark concept is a waste. The way the book is worded doesn’t allow it to flow in a way that is easy or simple for little ones to read. And ‘glow in the dark’ doesn’t work unless you turn out the lights, which means you can’t read the book! Plus the glow pages need ‘charging’ under a light before they work, so you need to open a page, charge the glow for a few minutes, then turn out the light, then repeat for the next page. My daughter got frustrated with this. In the end I had to get a torch and read by torchlight while trying to ‘supercharge’ the glow areas to have 30 seconds or less of glow time.
