Deep inside everyone, a little goblin lies sleeping. When it wakes up, its eyes turn green, its nose grows and it starts to breathe a smelly green mist.   


This is the story of the wakening of a Green-Eyed Goblin. When Theo sees his sister getting lots of attention for her birthday, his sleeping goblin wakes and he can't seem to stop himself from saying all the horrid things the nasty goblin's green mist is making him think. Will Theo learn how to send his Green-Eyed Goblin back to sleep in time for the party?   


This fun, illustrated storybook will help children aged 5-13 to understand and cope with jealousy and how it can sometimes make us feel not good enough. A helpful introduction for parents and carers explains jealousy in children, and a section at the back of the book provides strategies for overcoming it.

1. Introduction. 2. The Green-Eyed Goblin. 3. The Last Word.

'I love the author's boundless creativity and use of accessible language to help children wrap their minds around a very important lesson. By giving jealousy its own personality as a Green-Eyed Goblin, it also helps children learn to be less attached to it, so they can learn how to move from jealousy to gratitude. BRAVO Kay! You've written another gem.'
- Brian R. King, Success Coach for Asperger's, ADHD & Dyslexia
