Wilf The Mighty Worrier Saves the World

Publisher: Quercus

Lots of things worry Wilf: peanut butter getting stuck to the roof of his mouth, stuffed animals, rollnecks and creepy crawlies with lots of legs. But one day, something worse than any of those things changes Wilf's life forever: Alan, the apparently-normal man that moves in next door with his very tall wife Pam and her sproingy hair. But can Wilf stop worrying about Alan long enough to save the world?

With fantastic attention to all the funny details that make Wilf's life (and his nemesis, Alan) so worrisome, this is a truly laugh-out-loud read that also has a reassuring message for children who worry about the world.
