"Max & The Purple Anxiety Monster" is a touching story about a boy named Max as he moves to a new city and grapples with anxiety. His fears, embodied by a purple monster, loom large as he adjusts to his new home. Max learns ways to minimize his anxiety, thereby shrinking the monster's influence, such as writing in a journal and making new friends. Max's story of coping with anxiety is common amongst young children, and the visualization of the Purple Anxiety Monster is a helpful way for children to "name and tame" some of the big and fearful feelings they experience. Max & The Purple Anxiety Monster is a tale that teaches children the power of friendship, self-confidence, and coping strategies in facing change and fear.
