Is it true that when your parents separate they have to split everything, including the cat, so that mummy might get the head and daddy the tail? And that a little boy once reached out into the darkness and could never find his hand again?
Children can be scared of many things: getting lost, growing up, their parents getting divorced, being judged, homework. Fear is a normal emotion, which we should respect, because it helps to put us on our guard against danger. But it’s a double-edged sword: sometimes the mind makes no distinction between a real threat and a non-existent one. In this book, each fear is represented by a monster with a real identikit. In order to confront your enemies you have to know them, and have a trick up your sleeve to defend yourself…
