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

  • 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.
