Mary Langer Thompson about this book: Released in September 2016 this unique children's book, How the Blue-Tongued Skink got his Blue Tongue, tells the story of an innocent skink who takes on the serpent in The Garden. Dinky is bullied in the main ways people bully each other. Just enjoy the story, or begin a conversation with a child about bullying, skinks with blue-tongues that are native to Australia, or the story of The Garden. You'll love Dinky and his attempts to do what's right.
"Traveling a hero's journey, Dinky overcomes bullying, tries to save us all, and gains a unique blue tongue in the process." Loralie Pallotta, Preschool Owner for 26 years.
"I would read this story to my grandchildren and great grandchildren," says former kindergarten teacher and now author, Evelyn Blocker.
And from Dale Lopez, a secondary English teacher who found her students often don't know the basic stories of the Bible: "Although Dinky is permanently affected by another's wrong choice, he continues to encourage others to do what is right."
