LoveReading View on How to Catch a Rainbow

Freya is on a mission to catch her very own rainbow

Freya loves all the bright colours of a rainbow. And she loves their curvy shape, too. Looking at rainbows is fun but what Freya really wants is a rainbow of her very own. Armed with a net and a rucksack full of rainbow hunting kit, Freya sets off to find one and, when there are no rainbows to be found, she tries making one!

Just mixing sun and water can’t be that hard after all. When that doesn’t work either, Freya sets out creating a rainbow of her very own from all the colours around her.

How to Catch a Rainbow Synopsis

Freya loves rainbows. She loves their bright colours and their curvy shape. More than anything, she wishes she had one of her very own. One that she can keep forever. So she decides to become a Rainbow Hunter! She searches high and low, but no rainbows are to be found, so she decides to make her own, collecting items in every colour of the rainbow from the garden. But when things don't go quite to plan, Freya has to use her imagination and creativity to come up with a way to make her wish come true.

A vibrant story from the author of the bestselling The Perfect Fit with technicolour illustrations by Ana Gomez.
