Marie-Louise Gay’s Caramba (Groundwood Books) is set in a world where cats fly. But unlike his fellow felines, the title character is unable to take flight, no matter how hard he tries or how much he wants to. When Caramba’s cousins take him on a flying lesson, they accidentally drop him. He lands in the water, and discovers his talent for swimming, a talent the other cats don’t possess. This endearing story with an encouraging message is awash in soothing watercolour artwork. mRb
