Wolfgang is left heartbroken when his best friend Catreen runs off without him to play with Clarissa. Spider shows Wolfgang how to make his own fun and Wolfgang realises that there are other great friends out there just waiting to be met! There are some situations and feelings that we cannot change and there are some that we can. Knowing the difference between the two (and some ways to make ourselves feel happy) is a great trick to have up our sleeves!

A fantastic idea and much needed
What a brilliant way to teach children that they are able to rely on themselves!
This is a fantastic title that shows insight and plays an important role in helping children in today's world - highly recommended :)
Creatively brilliant with equally brilliant illustrations to foster communication about expressing feelings - such an important lesson for kids to learn rather than bottling them inside....this story makes us each feel as if we're not alone and what's more that it's normal to feel the way we do all in the backdrop of wonderful characters and visuals
I LOVE this book and Avril's important work - beautiful, gentle, compassionate, and so needed, for today's children (and their parents)!
Lovely book with a wonderful combination of vivid art work and rich text.
