Me and My Fear

Written by Francesca Sanna
Published by Nobrow Press

When a young immigrant girl has to travel to a new country and start at a new school, she is accompanied by her Fear who tells her to be alone and afraid, growing bigger and bigger every day with questions like “how can you hope to make new friends if you don’t understand their language?” But this little girl is stronger than her Fear. A heart-warming and timely tale from the bestselling author and illustrator of The Journey, this book shows us the importance of sharing your Fear with others after all, everyone carries a Fear with them, even if it’s small enough to fit into their pocket!
