This beautifully packaged book, embossed with shimmering detail and pops of colour will undoubtedly resonate with any of us who have ever been the tiniest bit scared about anything!
(That’ll be all of us then!)
“The day before the Underwater Fancy-Dress Parade, Alfie got that feeling.”
But with the unwavering love and constant support of his parents, surely Alfie can’t fail to succeed?
Alfie is anxious and his anxieties are played out through his dreams, which include an unassuming, but angry hat-wearing octopus and an orange, spiky pufferfish.
Awash with fear, Alfie confides in the cowboys on his wallpaper.
“I’m not brave enough to be Captain Starfish”
Whether he does or doesn’t, he certainly learns a lot about himself along the way.
