Sunday morning I felt a damp breeze. I heard squishy steps and a sloshy knock at the door. And I knew. The Blooz. When the Blooz shows up uninvited, muddies up your paints, and trickles into your socks, what do you do? What if even glitter Band-Aids and an ice-pop won't cheer it up? Through trial and error, the child in this story discovers that while it may not be easy, it's not impossible to shake the Blooz. With read-aloud rhythm and whimsical, sweet illustrations, this debut picture book can serve as a jumping-off point for talking about the blues . . . or simply enjoyed as a day spent with a big blue monster.

Editorial Reviews

The process of understanding emotion, especially for young children, can be overwhelming and abstract - the Blooz just might be the perfect concrete visual to help everyone get through those cranky days." - Kirkus "Debut author Levis has an impressively light touch." - Publishers Weekly "Blooz may be a blob, and he may be uninvited, but he is actually kinda cute, which makes this a nonthreatening tool for discussing negative emotions with young children." - Booklist "Children will identify with her feelings in this tale, and it will have value as a springboard for discussing sadness and how to work through it." - School Library Journal "
