Story and Pictures by Mary Albanese
THE BIG BLUE is a children's picture book about respect for the world and each
other. With its uplifting theme about the unbreakable bonds of family, industry professionals have called it a "powerful
story." The illustrations, tactile and collaged with layers of fabric and paper, have been described as "beautiful
and unique." It is the sort of story young children will want to hear over and over, and grandparents
and parents may be happy to share.
