From the bestselling team behind Mum and Dad Glue and Leave Me Alone comes a comforting and compelling story about worries and self-esteem.

The gentle rhymes and imaginative illustrations give a difficult subject a wonderfully light touch. A must-have for any child.
Illustrated by the winner of the Red House Children's Book Award 2013 and a New York Times bestselling artist.
