Timid

by Harry Woodgate

Ref: 17210

Timmy is a genius performer. Their costumes sparkle, their singing is pitch perfect; they are totally stage-ready. Except...they're not... quite yet. Stalked by a shy inner lion, Timmy thinks they'll never get to tread the boards. But then, classmate Nia rocks up with her Fashion. Together, they learn strategies to still their wobbles and, together, they stage a show which roars and dazzles. A fantastic story about overcoming shyness, this is also hugely refreshing for starring a child free of gendered pronouns. Woodgate's illustrations are so rich, flourishing with swishes and shimmers. There are also plenty of Woodgate's trademark, charming, illustrative nods, such as the iconic Pride colours on Nia's school bag badges and in the bunting which travels and flutters through the spreads. From the 2023 British Book Awards winner of the Children's Illustrated Book of the Year (for Grandad's Camper, available here). Non-binary UK author. Age 4-7, Paperback 27pp
