A gentle, perceptive story about facing our fears, worries, and anxieties--and the power of a supportive friend

"I have something in my head and it is scaring me," Pig said.
"What is it?" asked Horse.
"I can't say. I'm trying to ignore it."

Pig can't stop thinking about something that is bothering her. Try as Horse might to get her mind off of it--with bike rides, swims, and silly hats--it's no use. But maybe if Pig shares the something with her friend, they can talk about it and figure out how to face the something together.

With charming illustrations, subtle whimsy, and a gentle approach to serious themes, Pig and Horse and the Something Scary acknowledges the fears and worries that children can feel in their bodies and minds. It encourages heartfelt conversations about emotional challenges, while also exploring the power of a supportive, caring friend.
