Frazzled Freya

“There are very few monsters who warrant the fear we have for them.” – Andre Gide

“Freya feared she would be frizzled by the midday sun.

So she hid under a rock to watch her friends frolic and have fun.

Joanna Goanna begged her to play.

But under her rock frazzled Freya was determined to stay.”

The Australian Outback is a harsh and dry place. Not the ideal environment for a game or race. Freya is too frightened to go out and play. So she hides in the shadows to watch all day.

Her friends are all out in the heat of the sun. But Freya is too frazzled to join in their fun. Can Freya face what frightens her so? Or will she forever hide and say no! Find out in my new picture book packed full with unique gorgeous Australian reptiles.

A subtle tale for pre-schoolers and the early school years where they learn that not all fears are as bad as what they may appear.
