Go Away Glob

Sarah Elliott Smyth, Simon Howe

Jimmy blinked away tears.What if I get it wrong like last time? Glob hovered over him, like an angry rain cloud blocking out the sun. Jimmy looked down and shook his head.
“Go away, Glob,” Jimmy thought.

Did you know that everyone feels anxious or scared from time to time? It is a normal human emotion. Like when you almost fall or when you see a snake. It’s your body’s natural ‘fight, flight or freeze’ response.

Go Away Glob encourages children to process and overcome feelings of anxiety, worry and self-doubt, to get back to enjoying the activities that they love.

Go Away Glob is sensitively written to help children who develop anxiety in social situations such as in the class room or around their peers.'
