When Bailey awakes with a bad case of the grumps it seems there is nothing he can do to feel better. Or is there?

Karen Tyrrell, as you may be aware, is a mental health advocate who has previously written for adults. This time she reaches out to children and challenges them to think about how they might beat the blah.

Mental health issues in children go unnoticed so often and written off as other childhood issues. Books like this are much needed in helping to make children and the adults who love them work towards a less “blah” future, and understanding just why they feel the way they do and what they can do about it. I say well done Karen for filling a much needed niche.

Bright, comical and child friendly illustrations by Aaron Pocock.

Bailey is aligned with Kids Matter, national education curriculum and supported by Kids Help Line.
