              A story full of humour and heart about having the blues, in the form of a big heavy elephant. One day an elephant came and sat on my chest. I found it hard to get up or move around, to breathe or talk. I'm Blue, the elephant said. Can you please move, Blue? I asked. I don't want ...to move. This is a good spot for me to sit. You're crushing me, I said. Yet I find you very comfortable, said Blue. Mum read every book about elephants she could get her hands on, while Dad phoned an elephant specialist someone recommended. They all tried pushing, and pulling, and persuading. But would anyone - or anything - be able to shift Blue? Warm, empathetic, hopeful and often funny, with the ability to be read on different levels, My Elephant is Blue is the perfect story to help children explore and understand the experience of living under the weight of a big sadness.
