It Is Always Appropriate To Ask For Help

Dr Drew Palacio Author Interview

Shrieks and Sounds and Things Abound: The Quiet Wants of Julien J. follows a young boy who loses his temper when his reading is interrupted. What was the inspiration for your story?

The inspiration for all of my stories (there are more to come!) comes from the common though unique challenges I’ve observed in my clinical work experienced by adolescents and early aged youth. 

What morals were you trying to capture while creating your character Julien?

That it is always appropriate to ask for help; that we are always accountable for our actions; and that regardless of our age or size, we have agency and can direct a choice. 

What were some educational aspects that were important for you to include in this children’s book?

To always nurture socio-emotional growth; to remind that feelings, both big and small are okay-even if confounding. 

Do you have more books about dealing with emotions planned? If so, when can readers expect your next book?

Yes, my next book is entitled: Troubles and Doubles and Reflections Askew! The Curious Case of the Two Emily Soos. It will debut in September of 2023 and will focus on the concept of negative self-talk or ‘intrusive thoughts.’

Julien ran, full of excitement and glee, and tucked himself under a big oak tree.The school day was through, and his homework was done.Finally, he could read Bluebullet (Issue 161)!

All Julien J. wants to do is read his comic book in peace, but when distractions interrupt him time and time again, his frustration boils over. Julien kicks at the ground, he yells, he cries, and when the dust settles, he can’t believe what he sees-Bluebullet, the hero from his comic book, is standing right in front of him!

Learn what Bluebullet has to say about working through the most frustrating moments like a true superhero!
