I liked it

This book was fictional. My favorite character is Francesca as she slowly finds out that everybody else around her has a little Fear friend as well. Would recommend it to people who feel shy.

I love this book and it’s my favourite in the whole wide world! I like it because of the colours and how cute the little fears are. It helps me to understand my fears. I would recommend it to everyone because it’s interesting and I think they’ll just like it.

Everybody has a fear and that is good to know. I am also joining a new school and so I could relate to this book

I liked this book because I have a fear too.

I loved this book. I feel fear sometimes and this booked helped me to understand it.

This book was good but it was a bit too sad for me.I feel it was a bit too short and ended too quickly.

Everybody has a fear. Its ok to keep it small but not ok to let it grow into a big fear. I recommend this book to everyone.

I loved this book because everyone has a fear and I didn't know that I thought it was just me.

It was very weird

A beautiful way to help introduce PSED topics and support understanding of big emotions by giving fear a physical form.

It helped me understand that everyone has fears

It was really kind but at the start it was really sad. I liked the boy best because he was kind. The last park was nice because they both made friends and the worries kept shrinking and shrinking until they were gone.

I liked the book because Fear kept getting smaller and smaller. If you have little fear than it can sometimes save you from danger but too big fear is not good at all.

I learned that everyone has a fear

Great story and helped me to face me fears.

I liked it because there was a girl like me and it had a happy ending. The girl started to make friends and join in with others.

I also have a friend called fear especially when I go swimming but I made lots of friends there and my fear is very small now.

This was really good about things that hold us back and how we can overcome it

I liked when the girl had a cuddle with her fearand I didn't like when she didn't shear her fear
