Description

The Big Book of Blobs is a collection of Blob pictures that can be used as prompts to explore feelings. The relatable Blob characters are depicted in many different situations which can be used as a springboard for meaningful discussion on a range of issues and topics. The Blobs in this collection are organised into themes of places, issues, occasions and personal development, and include scenarios such as beach, cinema, city, concert, home, playground, bullying, death, fame, money, parents, romance, sleep, Christmas, Easter, Olympics, body, caring and feelings.

This second edition includes new Blob pictures in areas such as bereavement, self-harming, faith and A&E. Each Blob picture comes with suggested questions that can be used to guide the discussion; ranging from straightforward questions (which Blob is happy?) to more personal questions designed to explore opinions and feelings (Which Blob do you not understand? Which Blob would you like to be?). Offering handy photocopiable resources, the Big Book of Blobs provides a unique way to initiate conversations on a range of topics with individuals or groups of any age.

About the Authors

Pip Wilson is the author of over fifty books and the famous ‘Blob Tree’ tools, which can open the hardest heart, and is able to open up meaningful communication in all cultures and contexts.

His work has ranged from street gangs, Hells Angels, people with drug and alcohol issues, and charity housing projects. He currently works as a freelance people worker, conducting groupwork/ training/ facilitation in the corporate and voluntary sectors. He can be booked via his website www.pipwilson.com

Pip yearns for the uncomfortable, unease, dissatisfaction and daily refreshes the irritation. He believes that there is no such thing as a difficult person – only difficult behaviour.

Ian Long is an illustrator who has worked with Pip all of his adult life, drawing, creating and visualizing ideas that they have imagined together since the early 1980’s. He has been a youth and pastoral worker in Gloucestershire, a primary school teacher in West Sussex and Hampshire, a carer for his father who suffered with Alzheimer’s and is now working full time upon books.

As well as creating numerous Blob books, he is currently translating the Bible into a no word book, the Blob Visual Bible, so that it can be used around the world, by people with no literacy, as well as children, adults with special needs and churches from all nations.

He is married to Jane, and they have two beautiful adult daughters.
