eBook Addicts reviews Lucky G and the Melancholy Quokka

Lucky G and the Melancholy Quokka is a truly delightful and wonderfully illustrated book that is aimed at children who have depression. In the current climate of lockdowns and pandemics this book couldn’t have come at a better time, and as a sufferer of depression myself it is often hard to explain to my kids what it feels like and that is OK to not feel ok.

We all know the Quokka to be the happiest looking animal in the world, but when Dr Lucky G find out about one who is struggling he flies off to Australia in order to help him out. The illustrations and characters as well as the rhyming prose will captivate children and adults alike making this a wonderful and engaging story for both. The use of a Quokka animal in this book was genius as it just shows that even the happiest of people can feel sad sometimes and that is OK to talk about it.

Justin Fights Sleep is a funny and fantastical story about a boy who has decided that sleep is not for him and how he learns from the consequences of his decision. According to Parents Magazine, sleep fulfills several biological and mental imperatives including promoting growth, protecting the heart, controlling the appetite, boosting the immune system, reducing the chance for accidents, increasing attention span, and improving learning at school. Let Justin's story be a fun and gentle introduction into the importance of sleep hygiene for your family!

"This very short book is an opportunity for parents to help children begin to learn that sleep is necessary. It provides us with the energy to enjoy our awake time activities. Every child, teen and adult remembers the excitement experienced the night before a special event. It is truly a skill to be able to self-soothe and relax. Justin's story will be a wonderful addition to your bedtime story time routine."
