Wemberly Worried by Kevin Henkes


Wemberly Worried by Kevin Henkes

A back-to-school favorite Wemberly worried about spilling her juice, about shrinking in the bathtub, even about snakes in the radiator. She worried morning, noon, and night. Worry, worry, worry, her family said. Too much worry. And Wemberly worried about one thing most of all: her first day of school. But when she meets a fellow worrywart in her class, Wemberly realizes that school is too much fun to waste time worrying!


Henkes once again puts his finger on the pulse of young children, combining good storytelling, careful characterization, and wonderfully expressive artwork to create an entertaining and reassuring picture book. -- School Library Journal (starred review) Wemberly shows that being human is cause for celebration, even if you're a mouse. -- New York Times Book Review This winning heroine speaks to the worrywart in everyone. -- Publishers Weekly (starred review)
