An atmospheric exploration of childhood worries, and how to overcome them -- Now in paperback!

Billy is a bit of a worrier. He worries about everything. Most of all he worries about staying at other people's houses ... But a visit to his grandma's shows him how to overcome his fears with the aid of his imagination (and some tiny worry dolls).

  • A touching, sensitive story about the resourcefulness of children and using the power of the imagination to combat irrational fears.
  • In 2000, Anthony Browne won the prestigious Hans Christian Andersen Award (for Illustration) for his services to children's literature.

Great Book for younger readers


I came across this book by happy accident and it was perfect for my class of preps, some of whom had been losing sleep over going into year one. We made some worry dolls and according to the concerned parent "they really worked"!! Also good for exploring ideas such as what can you do if you're worried about something and also other cultures. Illustrations are beautiful too. A definite keep or share book.
