The Boy and the Wild Blue Girl

We rated this book:


The Boy and the Wild Blue Girl tells the story of how Poul la Cour learned to harness the wind using wind turbines. The Wild Blue Girl doesn’t seem to know her strength and is a nuisance to everyone she meets, but Poul has other ideas about the Wild Blue Girl, and he wants to harness her power. Poul studies hard every day and tests many ideas, then he begins to bring his ideas to life. The townspeople are curious when Poul starts building, and when he is done the townspeople are so happy and most appreciative of his creation. The book has very unique illustrations which appear to be made out of leftover newspaper and brightly colored illustrations. I loved that the Wild Blue Girl is actually the wind. I like when anthropomorphism is used in books. In the back of the book, it tells that this book was inspired by the life of scientist and inventor Poul La Cour, who built the first electricity generating wind turbine. I think this is a great book for those interested learning about the beginning of using natural resources as power.
