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***
If the only reason Felix solved his nighttime-worry problems was by getting a dog for his birthday, um...? What are the majority of kids going to do 1) if they cannot have a dog OR 2) if they have a dog and still have visits from The Worrier. It woul

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.

An endearing picture book that beautifully captures a child's nighttime anxieties. Felix 's peace of mind is disrupted every night when the worrier comes to visit and gives Felix fearful ideas. With a satisfying conclusion, this is a story that is both reassuring and empowering.

Read this with Natalie many times. The Worrier is a little man that comes and whispers worries to Felix, but in the morning they are never true. I love the ending where a friend helps Felix keep the worrier away for good.

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.
