LoveReading View on Jeremy Worried About the Wind

A comic story that will make even the most resolute worrier unwind

September 2020 Book of the Month

Jeremy is a worrier. We all know one, perhaps we even are one. He imagines risk everywhere, in burnt toast, spotty bananas, squirrels, and especially the wind. His friend Maggie has a much more laid-back approach, “What’s the worst that can happen?” is her motto. Well, one day, Jeremy gets to find out. Of course, in Pamela Butchart’s deliciously zany but reassuring story, the worst turns out to be a wonderful adventure. It’s a story that will make even the most resolute worrier unwind and one that will work its magic on the Maggies of this world too. Kate Hindley’s illustrations are typically expressive, particularly the three wordless spreads that tell the tale of Jeremy’s experience of ‘the worst’.  A wonderfully clever and entertaining picture book with a very wide appeal.

The overly-anxious will also enjoy Melanie Watt’s Scaredy Squirrel series, which is equally comic.
