    What do you do when you're feeling blue--especially when your mood takes the form of a drippy, oozy monster called the Blooz? Do you ignore it? Do you ask it lots of questions? Do you give it an ice-pop and hope it goes away? 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 a read-aloud rhythm and whimsical illustrations, this debut picture book helps children talk about emotions--and is perfect for young fans of friendly monsters.

    "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."

    "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."

    "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."
