Doggie Gets Scared

By Leslie Patricelli
Illustrated by Leslie Patricelli

Shadows, strangers, thunder and lightning! Sometimes Doggie gets scared. Don't worry, Doggie. Baby is here.

Baby’s toy Doggie is scared of many things: shadows, swimming pools, strangers, loud noises. Boom! Good thing Baby is there to help, with a trusty blankie (which sometimes works). Baby also comforts Doggie at nursery and at the playground when Mummy steps out of their sight. But when Doggie himself goes missing, could that be too scary even for brave Baby? Leslie Patricelli gives a fearless new spin to a universal toddler experience – and offers a few suggestions for things that can help the scary go away.

  • Baby is back, and experiencing what it's like to feel scared.
  • Baby uses their stuffed toy, Doggie, to express when they're feeling fear – a projection many parents will be familiar with – and the final spread features plenty of ideas for how to deal with scary things.
  • Leslie Patricelli covers yet another hallmark of baby and toddlerhood with the same aplomb for which she’s famous.
