The Lovereading4Kids comment

A perfect story to settle all anxieties and reassure all fears. Witty, tender and beautifully illustrated, this story of Pip, a very small creature with a very big list of things that are scary, is a joy to read. Pip is frightened of all the usual things, but he’s also frightened of all kinds of unusual things too. How on earth will he manage when he gets lost in the dark and frightening wood? Luckily, Pip finds he has unexpected reserves of courage – and so will all young readers.

Synopsis

The Scariest Thing of All by Debi Gliori

A tale about worries and fears familiar to all pre-school readers, by bestselling author and illustrator Debi Gliori. A little rabbit has a seemingly endless list of things to be afraid of. Even his family aren't sure how to help him overcome his anxieties! One day, everything gets just about as bad as it can and the little rabbit finally has to face his fears. In so doing, of course, he realises that nothing is as big, bad or as terrifying as it first appears.
