Frankie's Foibles A Story About a Boy Who Worries by Kath GrimshawFrankie is worried. He's worried about his new school, he's worried about making friends, and he's worried about the bully boys that wait for him on the corner of the street. But most of all, he's worried about what might happen if he steps on the cracks in the pavement. Then Frankie learns about his foibles, the pesky little creatures that whisper worries in his ear. They are bullies, just like the boys on the corner. But with a big grin on his face and a little help from his brand new friend, Frankie discovers that he can learn to ignore his foibles...and eventually escape his worries for good! This beautifully illustrated story will appeal to any child age 7+ who worries, especially those with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and anxiety. Emphasising that we all have worries, it is a great way for parents and professionals to approach the topic sensitively.

This book shows OCD as the curable illness it really is, and explains how fighting the foibles should be done. Warm, friendly and reassuring, Frankie's Foibles takes the fear out of OCD. -- Claire Sanders, author of 'Parenting OCD: Down to Earth Advice From One Parent to Another'
't alone with this experience... A valuable addition to the reading list of any young child experiencing OCD, anxiety and/or related bullying. -- Mel Thomsett Sensory Smart This is a wonderful story in both picture and text. The author has done both, and done an incredibly good job of giving us a child with a real problem that he must face up to as best he can. One wonders if his family has split up and if the 'new start'
's problems and his resulting OCD. An excellent book for schools as well as families! HealthyBooks'
