Me and My Fear

By Francesca Sanna
Illustrated by Francesca Sanna

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!

  • Sanna's previous book, The Journey, won the 2017 Amnesty CILIP Honour.
  • Deals with a topic that most children will relate to (fear and anxiety) while subtly addressing the struggles that refugee children might face in a new country.
  • Encourages children to develop empathy.
