Lucy and The Blue

Meet Lucy. She is just over a year old, the same age as The Blue. Just after she was born, her mother, Nicola Smith, received the novel to review for The Press in Christchurch. It turned out to be the first published review of The Blue - appearing on July 28 2007, just days after the book was released. It was a good one too (roll down the post to see it.)

Ever since, Lucy can't put it down.

Thanks to Nicola for this terrific shot of her daughter. I love those huge round blue-grey eyes and the grip of that tiny right hand. She also seems to be pointing at the little penguin on the cover which is rather sweet.
