Lucky G and the Melancholy Quokka: How Play Therapy can Help Children with Depression by Amy Wilinski-Lyman (Author), Leela Green (Illustrator)


Even the happiest creature on Earth can get the sads! Lucky G makes a trip down under to help out a struggling quokka. Join them on their journey to better mental health.  

Lucky G is a big bird on a big mission: To help kids cope with their mental and physical challenges.

Raves for the Raven Who is a Therapist 

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! 

The illustrations are colorful and whimsical, and the fact that Amy takes us on a journey to Australia provides the novelty that keeps the book captivating and moving right along. I truly enjoyed reading this and I believe children with depression, and their parents, will find acknowledgment, guidance and hope in this little book. Enjoyable, informative and capable of capturing a child's imagination. ~ Eliana Gil, Ph.D., Founder, Gil Institute for Trauma Recovery & Education, Fairfax, VA 

In her latest Lucky G book installment, Wilinski-Lyman makes the concept of play therapy accessible to children and parents. Speaking from experience, and from the heart, she presents therapy as a helpful tool for kids and fights stigma against depression. Her characters are easy to relate to for children and families alike. The vivid and expressive illustrations by Leela Green make this book a visual treat for all ages. ~ Marta Manning, former president NAMI Midland, MI chapter (National Alliance on Mental Illness) 

I liked the whole story. Blue was my favorite character--I would be friends with him. I liked how Blue was sad at the start and then was happy by the end. ~ Astor, 7 years old

About the Author
AMY WILINSKI-LYMAN lives in Michigan with her three awesome children: Zach, Drew, and Kendall; and her big fluffy orange cat, Marshall. Amy was hospitalized with depression for two months in early 2016. During that time, Amy’s family desperately tried to find resources to help her young daughter and two sons cope with their mom’s deep sadness. They quickly learned there was nothing really out there. Amy decided she would change that. She set out to create a character and a story children would enjoy and understand. Through her books and online presence she wants to show parents and children living with mental illness that there is hope.
