This is a new book I'm working on about a boy called Andrew (also ignore the picture, I coloured it on the computer and I don't really like it but I really wanted a least one picture in this post):

Andrew, wore nothing but blue.
Whether in a zoo, scooping poo,
Or with a crew, in a canoe,
The only hue, Andrew would do, was blue.

His family did all they knew,
To make sure they could ensue
That everything Andrew would view
Would be his favorite shade of blue.

A shoe, shampoo, a tissue, some glue,
all the most wonderful colour of blue,
but what on earth could they do
when it came down to what Andrew could chew, from a menu?

(That tofu with the cashew? Does that come in blue?)

Whilst working one day at the zoo,
inside his head an idea grew!
Something so marvelous it's untrue
to paint all the animals blue!

But poor Andrew!
He hadnt a clue (due to his low IQ)
that not a soul in the zoo,
would like to see an animal blue!

From Shrew to Gnu, everything was blue!
The manager of the zoo, took five people to subdue!
'Andrew! You spew! You must have lost a screw!
Everything is blooming blue!
You'd better get your butt out of my zoo,
before I give it a tattoo of my shoe!'

Andrew was feeling blue,
a peculiar feeling that was very new,
and to his surprise he did not value
this feeling he did review!
Annie Stead,
was a widepread airhead,
who loved to drive on her moped.

One day as she sped,
to her great dread,
she knocked Andrew straight into a shed!

As Andrew bled,
from his forehead
he realised Annie Stead,
wore nothing but red.

Everyone was shocked when he said,
that he loved a girl who wore nothing but red,
many blamed his bump on the head,
however next year they were happily wed.
Now their child was a peculiar fellow,
for he wore nothing but...

... Purple!

Obviously I still have a fair amount of work to do on this. There's a lot of editing that needs doing since there are gaps in the story that stop it from flowing very well, not to mention all the illustrations for it too but its definitely got me excited =D
