Product description


‘Funny, sweet and very useful for opening conversations with anxious children’ – Guardian

Everyone feels worried sometimes. But what if your worries came to life and started following you around?

Sohal worries about a lot of things: the dark, mutant sheep, being alone – you name it, he worries about it! So one night he tries drawing his worries to make himself feel better – and somehow they look a lot less worrying once they’re scribbled down.

But then imagine Sohal’s surprise when he wakes up the next morning to find a set of funny, furry friends at the end of his bed!

His worries have come to life, and it’s not long before Hurt, Fail, Anger, Big and Alone have turned his world upside down. Now it’s up to Sohal to work out how to keep his worries under control – and have some serious fun while he’s at it!

The Truth Pixie meets Inside Out in this hilarious, highly illustrated new series, perfect for helping children gently work through their worries and concentrate on having fun.

Our February 2021 Ages 5-6 Book of the Month

Mental health problems affect 1 in 10 children, making stories about helping children to deal with their emotions more important than ever. As I write during this period of lockdown, lots of you have been requesting books that will help younger children in this area, so I am shining a spotlight on my February Book of the Month, as I think this fits the bill.

The first book in a new series, we meet The Worriescharacter versions of the anxieties that children often face during new and sometimes daunting moments and situations. I really like the light-hearted touch that still successfully tackles real issues; the story is heart-warming, highly accessible and gently helps children to understand how to deal with their fears and concerns. The illustrations have a high-energy, cartoon-style feel to them and convey a great sense of emotion. It’s really important for kids to know they are not alone, and that it’s fine to share their feelings. Reading this book opens up this topic in a highly relatable way, offering kids reassurance and comfort, especially in the times we are in…
