You know those books that help children get over a fear of the dentist, a fear of being the new kid at school, or the thousand books that deal with the monster under the bed? This is the antibook to all of those. This book brings all those fears to life with 2-page spreads of each fear, including flushing a dead pet down the toilet. The illustrations are effective, and the choice of fears is reasonable. One has to ask the question, though, as to why this would be written at all.
