"A hilarious, conversational narrative presents a simple idea,
which is used to effectively explore fear and empathy. Deceptively
basic text and witty, expressive illustrations will delight
youngsters, but could also convey a subtle message about
confronting anxiety and seeing things from someone else's point of
view." -- BookTrust
"This is a good book for exploring how other people are feeling, and how those feelings might be the same as you, even if for different reasons. This could lead to exploring empathy in different scenarios, selfawareness and awareness of how other people might perceive things." -- EYE (Early Years Educator)
