When a young girl has to travel to a new country and start at a new school, her Fear tells her to be alone and afraid. How can she hope to make friends if she doesn't understand their language? A heart-warming and relevant new 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!

"[...] this creative depiction shows how friendship, empathy, and connection can help bring the overwhelming down to size for all." --Publishers Weekly, STARRED REVIEW "A universal book that can be used to explain fear to readers and give empathy to those in a new environment." --Kirkus Reviews "It will be a familiar story for many children, but the girl's specific fears about language and difference might make this useful for discussions about newcomers as well." --Booklist "[...] the pages get more colorful and the fears are contained within each spread to visually indicate to readers that fears are manageable and though they might not disappear completely, the most important thing is that we don't have to be scared alone." --Let's Talk Picture Books "A raw, tender story..." --Julie Danielson, Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast "Me and My Fear is a lovely reminder that we all have our fear with us, especially in new situations, which all of us have to face at some point. It serves as a wonderful visual representation of the anxiety an immigrant child might be experiencing and hopefully help them recognize that it doesn't have to rule the day. The illustrations are clean and bright and just right." --Luan Stauss, Laurel Bookstore, Oakland, CA
