Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
A compelling picture book.—Write Away

This is an excellent resource for those working with anxious children. The children love the story and the beautifully bright illustrations are sure to engage even the most reticent child.—Amazon reviewer

The book prompted a lovely discussion and was a great way for [my son] to articulate his emotions. Fantastic book - road tested and heartedly recommended!—The Fostering Network

Interesting, funny, brilliant and fantastic.—Books for Keeps

A good starting point to encourage children to discuss their anxieties and fears. It may also help children to realise that many children suffer with anxiety.—Little Parachutes
