Even the happiest creature on Earth can get the sads!
Lucky G, the colorful talking raven with a PhD,   makes a trip down under to help out a struggling quokka. Join them on their Australian journey to better mental health. This beautifully illustrated book is written in verse and perfect for read alouds.

This book grabs you from the outset and takes you on a hopeful journey: A colorful, spunky raven (with a Ph.D.) travels to Australia to meet a quokka who has lost his true smile, finds it hard to move, and isn't hanging out with friends anymore. Dr. G knows that depression is the culprit, and extends a listening ear and helping hand, all the while reassuring the quokka that lots of adults and kids feel depression, too!

Enjoyable, informative, and capable of capturing a child’s imagination.”
