Rajah and the Big Blue Ball is a delightful children's book. It can be read by elementary school children or read to younger readers. Filled with wonderful full-color photographs, each page is a delight to the senses.
Rajah is a black Labrador dog. He lives in a huge house which he shares with his mistress, Mommy Maia, and three Siamese cats: Christmas Parfait Sprinkles, Nikki-Nikki Small-enough, and Chynna Blue. In addition to the dog and three cats, sixteen yellow and blue fish live in a pond in the backyard of the house.
One day as Rajah is playing outside, a pinecone drops on his head. When he looks up, he sees a big blue ball. This is the mystery of Rajah and the Big Blue Ball. What is the blue ball? Why does it drop something on Rajah's head when he plays outside?
Children will be curious to see the steps Rajah takes to find the answer to the puzzle. Will the cats in the house be able to help him? Will Mr. and Mrs. Fish and their fourteen children be able to help him?
The resolution to the secret will bring a smile to the reader's face. Dr. Penick Phillips-Cermak has crafted a tale which will both educate and entertain. I plan to share this story with my own granddaughter. She adores puppies, and I know she'll love Rajah and the Big Blue Ball.
