The Blue Day Book

by Bradley Trevor Greive

Twenty years after its first printing, Bradley Trevor Greive’s New York Times bestseller The Blue Day Book has become a modern classic that brings smiles to readers around the world. And because we all still have bad days now and then, the time is right for a commemorative twentieth anniversary edition, featuring revised text, a new foreword, and exquisite illustrations by celebrated French-American artist, Claire Keane.

With an adorable new hero, Elephant, whom we join on a deeply emotional life-journey that is familiar to us all, Keane’s wonderful images and BTG’s witty and inspirational text are designed to lift the spirits of anyone who’s got the blues. No one can read this this book without smiling: it’s guaranteed.

We all have our bad days – they are an intrinsic part of being human. The solution is to see each incident in perspective, recognize that our feelings of failure and loss are neither unique nor enduring, acknowledge the absurdities of our existence, and glory in the potential we all have. In fewer than one hundred sentences The Blue Day Book conveys this message with great compassion and humour, taking us through the complete evolution of a blue day – what it feels like, what causes it, how to get over it.

The Blue Day Book has sold more than 2 million copies in Australia alone, and over 13 million in 115 countries worldwide.
