A Little Blue was designed for 7-12 year olds who are reluctant readers. The text and illustrations work together to tell a deeper story than the letter form of the narrative. This story has proved to be a favourite of all ages. Adults , children and babies love it.
A Little Blue is the first book in a series created by Jeanette about the threatened species of Aotearoa New Zealand. A Little Blue is endorsed by the West Coast Penguin Trust, with a donation from every sale of every book going toward conservation and protection of kororā, the little blue penguins.
A note from the creator: It was very important to me as the author to also illustrate A Little Blue. The story is set on the West Coast where I live and the illustrations needed to tell a deeper, bigger story than just the words, which are sparse.
