Green With Envy tackles the familiar feeling of jealousy—thinking someone else has it better than you—but in a punny way. It teaches about the importance of being grateful for what you have.
Blade is jealous of his cousin Augustine’s beautiful green color and location in the yard. Blade tries to make the most of what he has, but finally can’t take it any longer and moves to Augustine’s side of the yard. After soaking it all in, something happens that makes Blade realize his old life wasn’t as bad as he thought.
Readers will be able to relate to how Blade tries to have the same things as Augustine to make him happy.
The bright and playful art brings the yard alive and the personality of Blade brings humor and grass puns.
