The Queen of Darkness lives deep underground beneath a mountain with her child, Blue John, a boy she made from the blue of the glacier and the hot yellow light of the sun. Blue John is forbidden to leave his mother's side, but the lure of the light above is too strong. When a singing, dancing girl comes to the caves, Blue John must make a choice between darkness and light. A heart-warming story that embraces the beauty and colours of the natural world. High quality cream paper and a special easy to read font ensure a smooth read for all.

When she was a girl, Berlie used to send her stories to the local newspaper, and at various times was paid in chocolates, paints, and fireworks. Berlie says, "It was wonderful to receive these presents and I thought it must always be like this for writers." Berlie has twice won the Carnegie Medal for Granny Was a Buffer Girl and Dear Nobody, and is no longer paid in fireworks. Alexandria Neokanis is an illustrator and graphic designer.
