Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The young boy in this story is often happy. But sometimes he cries and cries--then it's "Hello, Blues. Hello, Blues Guy." The Blues Guy is an imaginary character based on a blues musician, but he's more like a lovable uncle. He sits by the boy's side to listen and chat, and they sing the blues together. The boy'sand#160;experience with the Blues Guyand#160;is further enhanced when they fly off into the sky and seeand#160;that everybody gets the blues sometimes: moms, dads, dogsand#160;and cats, even little old ladies from New Orleans. Looking beyond his own circumstances helps dry the boy's tears. And it's "Goodbye, blues. Goodbye, Blues Guy."

and#160;and#160;and#160; With a rhythmic, bluesy text and hip, eye-catching illustrations, this book is for just about everybody, but it's especially well-suited to a young audience, who may not know how to overcome sad feelings.

Synopsis:

Moods change from day to day, and you never know what tomorrow will bring. But one things for sure: when youve got love around you, the blues wont stick around long.

Synopsis:

Ever had the blues? Yesterday, one boy had them bad-not just the ordinary blues, but the “deep down in my shoes” blues, the “go away Mr. Sun quit smilin'¬? at me” blues. But today, guess what? Those blues are gone and he'¬?s got the “runnin'¬? my hand along the hedges” greens, the kind of greens that make him want to be Somebody. In YESTERDAY I HAD THE BLUES, the young narrator ponders a spectrum of moods-how they change from day to day and why it'¬?s okay that they do. R. Gregory Christie is a two-time Coretta Scott King honor award winner.Ezra Jack Keats Award.2003 Claudia Lewis Award (for poetry).Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books 2003 Blue Ribbon winner. Harmonious pairing of jazzy text and urban artwork.
