The Lovereading4Kids commentThe best book about jealousy Iâ€™ve come across. Somewhere in a space world, children are much the same as down here on earth.
Royd is jealous of his friend Gark who has everything from his very own space pod to a magician performing at his birthday party. What Royd has that no earthling possesses is a G.E.M â€“ his own personalised Green Eyed Monster who as Royd gets increasingly jealous gets bigger and bigger and, in the end, gobbles him up. Royd has to learn that no one has everything and that sharing is good.
G.E.M. by Jane ClarkeRoyd is convinced that his friend, Gark, has everything. He's just got a space pod, and he's allowed to go to Mars whenever he likes. Not only that, he doesn't have an annoying little sister who always wants to play Hide-and-Bleep. Royd tries to keep his Green Eyed Monster under control, but at Gark's amazing birthday party, there's a booster bouncer, a magician from Mars, a dragon to light his birthday candles, and all the kids get to whirl around the rings of Saturn. Royd gets so jealous that his G.E.M. gobbles him right up! Can Gark help him realise that having things isn't everything?
