A touching story about overcoming anxiety, written by the national treasure, Nadiya Hussain
The very first picture book from the winner of The Great British Bake Off and national treasure, Nadiya Hussain, beautifully illustrated by Ella Bailey.
A touching story about a little boy whose worry monster follows him everywhere he goes. It's there when he gets dressed, when he wants to play with his toys, and even when his friends come over to visit. How can he escape his worries?
Having suffered with panic disorder herself for as long as she can remember, Nadiya wrote this heartfelt story to help give children and parents the tools they need to talk about worries and anxiety, to ensure that no child suffers in silence.
Never again will she say she can't. Nadiya can and she will. Nadiya Hussain's delicious bakes and desserts, captivating smile and sparkling personality made her a hugely popular winner of 2015's Great British Bake Off.
Her first children's book, Nadiya's Bake Me a Story, will be published in the autumn of 2016, with her cookbook for adults, Nadiya's Kitchen, coming in June 2016. In addition to her books, Nadiya is a columnist for The Times and Essentials, and a regular reporter for The One Show on BBC One.
Nadiya's family is originally from Bangladesh, where desserts aren't a feature of mealtimes. But, encouraged by a school home economics teacher, Nadiya honed her skills as a baker over ten years and produces fabulous bakes and desserts every day. She also loves to write, having won a National Poetry competition as a child.
Born in Luton, Nadiya lives with her husband, Abdal and is mum to three gorgeous children.
