A charming new story from the author of Guess How Much I Love You, with an original take on the subject of childhood anxiety.
Once there was a girl called Mindi, who was afraid of something that no one else could see. This thing that she was afraid of, this thing that no one else could see, was a big goose. It came into her room as quietly as a thought comes into your head, and it stayed there for as long as it wanted to...

So begins a new story by Sam McBratney, author of publishing phenomenon Guess How Much I Love You - the book which captured the hearts of children and parents all over the world. In Mindi a little girl and her devoted father try everything they can think of to drive away the "big goose", which only she can see. A sensitive exploration of childhood anxiety, the story is told with charm, wit and a touch of whimsy, and is paired with Linda Olafsdottir's delicate illustrations. The end result has the feel of a modern fairy tale and is sure to become a bedtime favourite.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The posthumous publication of Mindi and the Goose No One Else Could See reminds us of his best qualities as a writer: gentle wisdom and animals with unforgettable personalities. [...] Linda Olafsdottir's soft watercolour illustrations match the tenderness of McBratney's tale, which sees Mindi find solace and strength in unexpected places. * The Irish Times *
From the author of the super Guess How Much I Love You, Sam McBratney, comes a sensitive book about childhood anxiety called Mindi and the Goose No One Else Could See featuring some lovely soft-hued artwork by Linda Olafsdottir. While childhood fears are often silly to grown-ups, they are very real and very big to kids. Mindi and the Goose No One Else Could See takes those fears seriously in a warm and sympathetic way. * The Irish Independent *
This beautiful story about a girl learning to let go of her fears feels like an instant classic. Linda Olafsdottir's pencil and watercolour illustrations are a perfect fit, highlighting the simple magic of early childhood [...] This is a lovely, calm book to read to little ones who may be anxious about something, and a lovely story even if not. * BookTrust *
McBratney's text is beautifully written and the illustrations are gently coloured and full of expression. He sadly died last year but his books, like the much-loved Guess How Much I Love You will leave a lasting legacy. * The Irish Independent *
