Frankie’s Foibles: A story about a boy who worries  (Hardcover)
By Kath Grimshaw

“I can’t recommend this book highly enough. It’s easy to read, and illustrated beautifully. A wonderful book about how normal unpleasant thoughts are, how a problem shared is a problem halved.” Claire Goldenberg, OCD-UK volunteer

Book Synopsis
A book aimed for young children with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder.

Frankie is worried. He’s worried about his new school, he’s worried about making friends, and he’s worried about the bully boys that wait for him on the corner of the street. But most of all, he’s worried about what might happen if he steps on the cracks in the pavement.

Then Frankie learns about his foibles, the pesky little creatures that whisper worries in his ear. They are bullies, just like the boys on the corner. But with a big grin on his face and a little help from his brand new friend, Frankie discovers that he can learn to ignore his foibles… and eventually escape his worries for good!

This beautifully illustrated story will appeal to any child age 7+ who worries, especially those with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and anxiety. Emphasising that we all have worries, it is a great way for parents and professionals to approach the topic sensitively.
