As a professional clown, I often encounter coulrophobia as have every single one of my colleagues over the years.

Excellent Book! I had seen previews of the illustrated cover from the author and illustrator's social feed but I was totally unprepared for being struck with awe as I opened the book from the mail.

Love them or hate them

I love clowns, so I had high hopes for this book. I appreciate what it aims to do with the mom overcoming coulrophobia. I just don't think it was completely successful. it doesn't do a good job at explaining why the mom gets over it. I wish there was more of an epiphany. the illustrations are kind of crude, but in a good way. but the formatting for kindle doesn't work well. having said that, I think this book is for a niche audience that might really enjoy the book.
