This is the story of Alfie and a big octopus wearing a tiny hat and the things you can only whisper to the cowboys on your wallpaper. It's about shyness, anxiety, and realising that sometimes it takes a bit of time to find the courage that we need.

For children aged 4+, and everyone who's ever wished they were a little bit braver.

‘This gorgeous picture book doesn't whack you over the head with its exploration of social anxiety, but considers a sensitive boy's feelings with empathy and subtlety … The theme is beautifully explored and Allison Colpoys' illustrations perfectly capture his vulnerability.’ ALEXA DRETZKE, READINGS
