Little Mouse's Big Book Of Fears by Emily Gravett
The message of this ingenious worrier�s guide to phobias is: �A Fear Faced is a Fear Defeated�. Taking the form of a nibbled notebook, it is a catalogue of fears and their Latin names, from arachnophobia to panophobia, plus the made-up �whereamiophobia, the fear of getting lost�. NICOLETTE JONES

You could say that having children forces you to write children's books because they're only about 20,000 words long - you just don't have the time to write anything longer. CRAIG BROWN
