About the Book

Blue is a insight in to the day of a very normal little boy. At first, you think he looks as though everything is fine,

yet a touch more insight reveals that 'Blue' is not having a very good day. Actually, he feels all kinds of different physical and emotional feelings he struggles with. 

This is a gentle conversation starter for any parent with a child who may be having a tough time







Believing everyone has the right to see their words in print has become a slight obsession for Emma. This has inspired her latest publishing project - the 'how to' guide for inspiring writers. Child Writes: Creating a Children's Picture book is Child's Play, was published in May 2012 and it won a GOLD Best Non-Fiction Adult eBook at the 2012 IPPY Awards. Imagine, illustrated by Ester De Boer has just won a GOLD Best Children's Illustrated eBook at the 2015 IPPY Awards in New York, USA and one of the illustrations 'Lyrebird' was selected for exhibition in the Book Illustrated Gallery, for the Asian Festival for Children's Content in Singapore.
