The Green-Eyed Goblin

What to do about jealousy - for all children including those on the Autism Spectrum

Author
Illustrator
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.

Press reviews for: The Green-Eyed Goblin

Brian R. King, Success Coach for Asperger's, ADHD & Dyslexia

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.

The illustrations alone would make this book worthwhile! The crayon, child-like and very expressive pictures add greatly to the text... Nevertheless, both are very necessary to this book about jealousy and anger... the author is an expert on autism, and she may well intend this to be an autistic child. However, the story is highly useful for non-autistic children too - those who are capable of great anger for small reasons... She also has some good coping strategies that will help... A beautifully published book with lots going for it.
