The Boy and the Wild Blue Girl
Inspired by the work of wind power pioneer Poul La Cour, this is a clever and charming story about a girl with a special gift and the boy who helps others see it, from the author-illustrator of Mary Wears What She Wants. Poul was curious about everything. But he was especially curious about the wild blue girl. She often blew in from out of nowhere and didn’t know her own strength. Everywhere she went, she wreaked havoc. No one understood that she just wanted to help – no one except Poul. If only people could see her talents at work, he thought, they would know just how special she really was. This is a clever and inspiring story of how curiosity and observation can bring about change in the world.
