Little Mouse's Big Book of Fears

Illustrated by Emily Gravett

Spiders: Little Mouse is afraid of them (arachnophobia).

Shadows: Little Mouse is afraid of those (sciaphobia).

In fact, Little Mouse is afraid of everything. Join her as she faces her fears and records them in her journal - and discovers that even the biggest people are afraid of some things.
