Like the text, Maland's detailed, delicately crosshatched illustrations are funny and poignant (The herald 20031102)
The artful text is packed with wit and wisdom, while the pictures are suitably monstrous without being too scary... Jus the job for assemblies, circle times, anxious children - and their teachers too. (Best Books 2003 Scholastic 20031102)
From the Publisher
An outstanding new work from this leading picture book partnership!
A poignant, but accessible text from popular children's author - Kathryn Cave. Cave is particularly adept at conveying children's thoughts and feelings with honesty and integrity. A rare thing indeed!
Distinctive, detailed and endearing illustrations, full of wonder, from up and coming children's illustrator Nick Maland.
Outstandingly stylish typographical design.
A fantastic text to use in Key Stage 1 & 2 Citizenship and PSHE classes. Bound to inspire valuable classroom discussions relating to 'confidence' and 'feelings'.
