What do you do when you
have butterflies in your tummy,
the ones that make you really shy,
nervous and all a-flutter?
One day a visitor arrives,
who shows Tilly how to make
those pesky butterflies be still.

“I was quite interested to come across this book which clearly fits into the bibliotherapy genre, addressing as it does the problem of free-floating anxiety, set within an appealing narrative and complimented by good quality design and attractive illustrations …” Barbara James, Magpies

“ …This is a fabulous story offering a simple method of dealing with nerves and shyness … It is a great book to read aloud and lets the listener join in with taming the butterflies. This is a story that children will want to read, or listen to, over and over again.” Kathryn Duncan www.aussiereviews.com
