This thoughtful book speaks perfectly to children dealing with anxious and fearful thoughts. The personification of fear works flawlessly here, and the message that fear is not something to be eliminated, but rather that it's important only not to let it grow too big is what makes this title a real winner. All at once demystifying fear and nudging us toward compassion, Sanna gets all the stars from me. ~ Reviewed by Hanna Yost
