Advanced Praise for this book:

“An encouraging tale for young readers with their own fears to face.” - Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"This is a wonderfully charming, thoughtfully written and beautifully illustrated children's book. We've all been there, having to face a fear of something and overcome it. Where this book stands out is in encouraging children to talk about their fears, how they've come about and how it makes them feel. I was glad to see that Vicky's friends were supportive and encouraging, too. Highly recommended should you have a young child dealing with fears." - The International Review of Books

Author Biography:

Michael and Alysia are husband and wife health professionals who live in the Australian capital, Canberra, with their children, a dog, an African grey parrot, two turtles and some chickens.

In 2019, they decided to write a book that inspired children to believe that, no matter what, they had the power to choose to overcome their fears. The consequences of the choices we make will shape our behaviour and shape our lives into what we will become.
