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
