The author also did the illustrations, and I LOVE the illustrations. Warm watercolor, minimal but effective facial expressions. And the story itself is enjoyable. Short, sweet, gentle, encouraging! This is a great kids book, a bed time treat that can be read over and over. Worth picking up, especially if you have a child that needs a positive message of support in dealing with concerns or fears. It's like a warm hug on a crisp fall day. Well done all around!"
