Ludo Studios. Penguin Books.

If there is one thing that I love about Bluey it is how unapologetically Australian it is. So much of this show feels like a love letter to Australia.

"The Creek" captures this feeling well. When I was a kid my family and I used to drive into the countryside to have picnics in the bush. There would be kangaroos, picnic tables, waterfalls and we would go on bush walks. One time I went exploring on my own and found a creek. I got down on my knees and pushed back some long grass and saw a turtle swimming in the water! I remember sucking in a deep breath and standing up and bellowing for someone to come and see. It was a magical moment and I can remember thinking… the creek is beautiful.

"The Creek" is a board style picture book that was published by Penguin books on 28 April 2020. It is based off episode 29 of season one of Bluey which was also called "The Creek" and aired on 3 April 2019 to 189,000 viewers.

"The Creek" begins with Dad taking Bluey, Bingo and Mackenzie to the park to play. Bluey gets tired of playing at the park so Mackenzie has an idea and suggest that Dad takes them to the local creek to play. Dad agrees and the kids are happy, except for Bingo. She is uncertain what the creek might be like and wonders if she should stay in the park. Mackenzie encourages her to come along and tells her the creek is beautiful. Bluey agrees to step out of her comfort zone and visit the creek. What she finds is the creek is a beautiful place filled with lots of new things to discover and explore.

"The Creek" is another great Bluey book for small children. The colours and illustrations are charming and it has a great message in it about finding joy in nature.
