The Truth Pixie meets Pixar’s Inside Out in this hilarious, heartfelt and highly illustrated new series, perfect for helping children gently work through their worries and concentrate on having fun.
Everyone feels worried sometimes. But what if your worries came to life and started following you around?
Sohal worries about a lot of things – the dark, mutant sheep, not having any friends – you name it, he worries about it! So one night he draws his worries to make himself feel better – and somehow they look a lot less worrying once he’s scribbled them down . . .
Imagine Sohal’s surprise when he wakes up the next morning, and finds a set of funny furry friends at the end of his bed! His worries have come to life, and it’s not long before Hurt, Fail, Anger, Big and Alone have turned his world upside down. Now it’s up to Sohal to work out how to keep his worries under control – and have some serious fun while he’s at it . . .
