Little Boy Blue is the boy from the Little Boy Blue nursery rhyme of the same name. He is a soldier in the army residing in Fort Charming.


In The Everafter War, he received a couple broken ribs fighting the Scarlet Hand.

Earlier, in Book 6, Mr Canis was tried by by a jury made up mostly of Scarlet Hand members. One of these was described as a young man dressed entirely in blue. Whether or not this was Little Boy Blue is unclear.  

Nursery Rhyme

The most common version of the poem is as follows:

Little Boy Blue
Come blow your horn
The sheep's in the meadow
The cow's in the corn

Where is that boy
Who looks after the sheep?
Under the haystack
Fast asleep.

Will you wake him?
Oh no, not I,
For if I do
He will surely cry.
