From the bestselling team behind Mum and Dad Glue and Leave Me Alone comes a comforting and compelling story about worries and self-esteem.

When a little girl feels worried she goes into a world of her own. At first the world is full of cream cakes and cola but soon the worries begin to take hold... Only her family and friends can help.

The gentle rhymes and imaginative illustrations give a difficult subject a wonderfully light touch. A must-have for any child.

Illustrated by the winner of the Red House Children's Book Award 2013 and a New York Times bestselling artist.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Emotionally charged illustrations match a text that conveys a serious message with humour and sensitivity. * The Bookseller *

Praise for Mum and Dad Glue:
"An incredibly powerful book about a boy coming to terms with his parents' divorce: a difficult subject treated with a wonderfully light touch. I'm a huge Lee Wildish fan and think he's definitely a name to watch for the future. I defy you to read this without a lump in your throat."

* Kate Skipper, Waterstones Buyer *
Lee Wildish's illustrations are lovely. The characters have a rough charm that really draws you in - there are hints of Quentin Blake's ink drawings, but Wildish's style is very much of its own. * Bookbag *
A touching tale that resonates with empathy and poignancy. * Junior *
A powerful and comforting book about caring for your friends and not tolerating bullying. * Junior *
An empowering story. * Books For Keeps *
The message is given with such a humorous lightness of touch that it comes over as an engaging story. The illustrations, full of funny but sensitive and understanding animals, are a super match for the text. * Books For Keeps *
Speaks loudly to readers about the need to share big problems to help overcome them. Expressive illustrations and clever use of shading help reinforce Kes Gray's simple, but emotionally engaging text. A valuable story. * Carousel *
The simple words are accompanied by strikingly original pictures which convey images of feelings and invite interpretative chat, a very useful and terrific book. * School Librarian *
A powerful little book with a super strong positive message! Handles overcoming a bully wonderfully. * Fiction Fascination *
