Stewie is a very special skink -- he has a beautiful blue tail which gives him a superpower against his enemies. Stewie loves singing his songs and rhymes as he dashes around his home. But as he grows up his beautiful blue tail starts to turn grey -- he can't call himself Stewie the Blue anymore And without his rhymes, his home by the pond doesn't feel as special either. A new Tell-Me-More Storybook about self-esteem, change, and growing up.

Includes non-fiction back matter with bonus information and activities.

"I'm Stewie the Blue " he'd shout over the pond. And he would make up little songs as he darted through the woods.

I'm Stewie.

I'm blue-y.

It really is true-y.

I like to eat crickets and centipedes chewy.
