Murray Bear has lots of worries. What if the waterfall he's visiting is too loud? What if he's not very good at climbing? And what if all his friends laugh at him? With the help of his sister, Milly, Murray makes a special box in which to keep all his worries. But can the worry box really help?
With wonderfully soft illustrations from Sean Julian (I'll Love You For Ever, A Friend Like You, Bear Can't Sleep!), this is the perfect book for children dealing with anxiety or feeling nervous about starting at a new school or nursery.
