REVIEW: In Blossom by Cheon Yooju
One day, a cat and dog meet on a bench. The cat eats her lunch. The dog reads his book. But the sun twinkles, the breeze blows, and there’s something sweet in the air…
This is a beautifully illustrated story of the joys of spring and finding a new friend.
Dear Cheon Yooju,
I saw the cover for this book and immediately wanted to read it. I’ve had cats and dogs for years but they never sat down together to enjoy a meal and a spring day plus I’m not sure they’d have been this well mannered. What could be more charming than a cat eating her gimbap from her doshirak using chopsticks as a breeze gently wafts a blossom her way? I wonder what book dog is reading. I do know that they’ve each made a wonderful new friend in this sweet and gentle story which I think older children would enjoy. B
