I love the author's boundless creativity and use of accessible language to help children wrap their minds around a very important lesson. By giving jealousy its own personality as a Green-Eyed Goblin, it also helps children learn to be less attached to it, so they can learn how to move from jealousy to gratitude. BRAVO Kay! You've written another gem.
The illustrations alone would make this book worthwhile! The crayon, child-like and very expressive pictures add greatly to the text... Nevertheless, both are very necessary to this book about jealousy and anger... the author is an expert on autism, and she may well intend this to be an autistic child. However, the story is highly useful for non-autistic children too - those who are capable of great anger for small reasons... She also has some good coping strategies that will help... A beautifully published book with lots going for it.
