Review

Billy's a bit of a worrier. He worries about so many things, like hats and rain and clouds and giant birds, that it keeps him awake at night. One night Billy stays at his Grandma's and tells her about being worried. She has the ideal solution – a set of worry dolls who will do Billy's worrying for him while he sleeps.

Billy is thrilled and sleeps like a log but soon starts to worry about the worry dolls having so many worries! This time, however, he doesn't need anyone else's help but uses his own resourcefulness to overcome his problem.

A simple story, beautifully told, which will reassure and entertain children and adults alike. Anthony Browne's stylistically distinctive illustrations are characteristically apt and evocative.
