Book Launch – Boy in the Big Blue Glasses – St Columba’s Primary School

August 9, 2019 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

Sammy, his classmates and author Susanne Gervay will join the students of St Columba’s Primary School for the book launch of Boy in the Big Blue Glasses in Adamstown!

Friday 9th August 2019

The Boy in the Big Blue Glasses is a swashbuckling adventure, where cardboard boxes become googly-eyed fish and even a pirate ship! Watch out for sharks as Sammy, the brave captain leads his crew of girls and boys across the seas.

Sammy’s a hero, like all kids, until the day he feels different. He gets glasses. His parents, teacher and family are happy for Sammy, because life is no longer blurry. So, the great miscommunication begins.

The superhero is still heroic, funny and determined as he uses clever tactics and quick thinking to stay on top. But he’s losing his special powers. He feels no-one hears or sees him at home and at school. Sammy’s self-esteem plummets, until there’s a crisis where Sammy is alone, wearing his big blue glasses.

Things have to change. Through humour, self-realisation and the indomitable spirit of kids, Sammy wins the challenge of change. Wearing his glasses, the heroic captain returns, leading his pirate crew on new adventures.
