Recommends it for: those who worry at night!

I absolutely LOVE the concept for this book (and they ought to make one for grown-ups because I know I am visited by The Worrier one too many nights!) and Felix is sooo cute. However, I thought the resolution was a bit unsatisfactory.
***SPOILERS***

My 5-year-old loves the "Max and Ruby" series by Rosemary Wells but neither of us liked this book. I don't like the message it sends. Why does a child need to have a Worrier appear every night? Especially one that tries to ruin his birthday by telling him people might not come to his party or he might get scary gifts?!

"When all the world lay fast asleep, someone tapped on Felix's window. It was the Worrier."

what a hilarious little book! Logan laughed out loud. When I read it to Logan's daddy this evening, we both laughed. Felix is a guinea pig who is visited at night by a little creature called the worrier, who talks up small concerns into big worries. I love Wells' illustrations of the perpetually big-eyed Felix. If you've got a little worrier, this charming book might help talk about. it.

Externalising worry is a really good way to work with younger children. Rosemary Wells has created a lovely story with cute illustrations. A nice book for the little worriers.

This is quite possibly the funniest children's book I've ever read. Our whole family was belly laughing!
