Are you ready to come out of your nest? The Little Squirrel Who Worried is a timely new book for children (and adults!) as we cautiously exit lockdown. We have two copies of this lovely book to give away!

About The Little Squirrel Who Worried

This wonderful new book (discovered by Gill Books’ Director Nicki Howard in the submissions pile) by child and young people’s therapist, Katie O’Donoghue, tells the story of Little Squirrel who hasn’t left his nest since last autumn.

Luckily, Little Squirrel has lots of friends in the forest, from Wren to Snuffly Hedgehog, Grey Rabbit to Mister Fox, Old Badger to Great Stag. Will their encouragement and words of advice be enough to help Little Squirrel to venture out?

This has been a very difficult year for many. Through the story of Little Squirrel and his adventures in the forest, readers young and old come to learn coping techniques and to realise that, although we all feel worried sometimes, we don’t have to face those worries alone. And with a little help from his friends, Little Squirrel eventually emerges from his cosy nest, as the rest of us begin to, too.
