A young bird with a flair for discovery and invention learns self-acceptance one blue-footed step at a time.
Benjamin the blue-footed booby is coming of age in his flock's world of flying, diving, swimming, and fishing. But he already has a unique gift: treasure-hunting. One day, after finding a mirror, Benjamin becomes convinced that his beak is too long, his wings are too wide, and his feet are too big and blue. He decides to use his treasures to change himself.
But without his beak, wings, and feet, is he even a blue-footed booby anymore?
Illustrated with Sue Macartney's lively, light graphic art style, Benjamin's Blue Feet is a playful, jovial picture book about self-image and self-worth. Packed with humor and heart, it is sure to become a new storytime favorite.
