We all have moments when we don’t feel ourselves. But what does a barbarian do when he’s feeling blue? He no longer wants to slay dragons or banish uberwaiths to the ninth dimension. Even the forest wizard’s spell of enchantment doesn’t make him feel better. The answer to Oothar’s blues comes in an unlikely manner which parents and kids will enjoy. WONDERFUL illustrations by the author!

Love this book! I’m even Ok that I’ve had to read it with/to my 5yo every night since it was delivered. Creative and engaging illustrations that support the unexpected conversion in the life of Oothar the Blue.

Everyone can relate to OOTHAR THE BLUE on his very down day. We all have them. He doesn’t want to slay dragons (oh my!) and or send uberwraiths to the ninth dimension. And when the wizard’s spell of enchantment is anything but, Oothar gets angry. He yanks out trees and smashes boulders and slashes grass with his sword. Poor blue dude! Then he has a life-changing encounter with a mauve minotaur and is transformed. 5/5 for this big-hearted, gorgeously illustrated tale.
