Staff Reviews


The Blue Girl of this story is a special entity that shapes the young narrator of the story in ways unimaginable. The art is created in mixed media. Negley mixes art, fantasy and science together to make a book that is fiction but is also based on the life of scientist Poul la Cour. A scientist who helped with the invention of wind turbines. — Jeanette

Description


Inspired by the work of wind pioneer Poul la Cour, The Boy and the Wild Blue Girl is the imagined story of the invention of wind turbines, featuring themes perfect for Earth Day.

Everyone thought the wild blue girl was a nuisance.

Everyone, that is, but Poul.

This is a clever and inspiring story of how curiosity and observation can bring about change in the world.
