Stewie is a very special skink -- he has a beautiful blue tail which gives him a superpower against his enemies. Stewie loves singing his songs and rhymes as he dashes around his home. But as he grows up his beautiful blue tail starts to turn grey -- he can''t call himself Stewie the Blue anymore! And without his rhymes, his home by the pond doesn''t feel as special either. A new Tell-Me-More Storybook about self-esteem, change, and growing up.

Includes non-fiction back matter with bonus information and activities.

"I''m Stewie the Blue!" he''d shout over the pond. And he would make up little songs as he darted through the woods.

I''m Stewie.

I''m blue-y.

It really is true-y.

I like to eat crickets and centipedes chewy.

The ground was just damp enough. And the air was just perfect.“I’m Stewie the Blue!” he’d shout over the pond.And he would make up little songs as he darted through the woods. I’m Stewie.I’m blue-y.It really is true-y.I like to eat crickets and centipedes chewy.
