Indigo Blue loves the ocean. Her book “Peregrine Puffin” (published by Xlibris) is the first in her series of children’s books dedicated to the ocean environment called O.R.C.A. (The Oceanic Rescue Club). She hopes that it will inspire people to connect with the ocean, learn about the creatures that depend on it and make choices to protect it.

The book tells the story of Peregrine, the Atlantic Puffin. ‘Pippin’ as he likes to call himself, has a secret: he is being bullied. Maybe if he had more friends it would not bother him so much, but how will he makes friends when he is supposed to spend all his time out at sea, catching herring? He would much rather be at home in his burrow, growing blackberries on his wild and windy cliff-top. Then, one day, in the middle of a very trying day for Pippin at Spring School, the bully who makes Pippin’s life a misery finds himself in a life and death struggle. Will Pippin forgive him? Will Pippin save him?

“The main character in this book is sweet and sympathetic,” the author says. “He is faced with peer pressure and feels lonely and inadequate. But when push comes to shove, he finds something heroic inside proving that even the smallest of the group can show that he has the biggest heart.”

“I want readers to feel good about themselves, I want them to feel that they matter, that everybody matters. I want them to understand that, even though we are all different, we are all the same!” she states.
