Worries as tiny paper aeroplanes, solutions to sadness in a suitcase and friendship milkshakes! Three of many images that Amie offers to engage young people in starting a conversation about their feelings. We all have them, and now we have an activity book to help us deal with our emotions.

This brilliant book of stories is a lovely way into discussions about a wide range of feelings. The stories effortlessly spark discussion and capture children's imagination. The guidance and suggestions for adults add a richness and confidence to these conversations. A remarkable resource that is a joy to engage with.
Ryan Campinho Valadas, Integrative Therapist at Self Space
It's very common for adults to forget how it really feels to be a child - it is why we sometimes invalidate children's very real worries, as well as their joys. The Monster Book of Feelings is very special because it talks to children directly, as well as to their makers and carers. It encourages children and adults to explore and share feelings with each other through wonderful stories, and playful and thoughtful activities. It looks at the here and now of children's mental health, and to what children will need in the future.
Suzanne Bennett, Senior Inclusion Officer and Deputy DSL
Hoorah for this brilliant and beautifully illustrated mental health resource for young children and adults. Through the monster adventures on Icicle Island and many fun activities, children are enabled to connect with their own emotions, make sense of them & learn how to become more peaceful & happy. A fantastic book for both educational settings and home.
