In the Blue Series that consists of three story books and an activity book, she tells the stories of three different animals. BLUE MOGI is about a bear cub who is born with blue fur. In the forest where he lives with his mother and other bears, he feels lonely because he has no friends; other bear cubs make fun of his blue fur.
