The Ballad of Blue Eagle is an exceptional picture book, written and illustrated by a father-son team. A story that has been handed down from generation to generation.


Written in rhyme, young readers are instantly whisked away to Peaceful Valley. A place that contains purple mountains, deep-blue rivers, forested hills, and some lovable creatures! This exquisite place in time is governed by the keen eyes eye of Blue Eagle, and is guided by the Golden Rule. When a danger threatens its inhabitants, the animal’s band together.


The Ballad of Blue Eagle is not just an entertaining read, it also contains numerous moral messages and educational tools for young and old alike, such as: the value of friends, cooperation as a team, and looking out for others. Illustrations are splendid and detailed, and landscapes: extraordinary.


A song is included at the back of the book that should be a joy to sing along with children. The Ballad of Blue Eagle is a must have for parents and teachers everywhere!
