There's a Dragon in my Pocket
A Story About a Boy and his Fear
by Shannon Brink

A boy finds himself thrown into a mysterious situation where his parents have become anxious and afraid. At the same time, he finds an invisible dragon called 'Fear' that lives on him and won't leave. As the dragon grows, the boy must eventually take courage and tell his family about his fear. As he does, he finds that others have fear dragons too!

This is not just a story but a conversation starter to help school-aged children speak to adults they trust about the invisible burdens they carry and the impacts they have on their lives.

"Excellent way to open a discussion about fear with a child. I really enjoyed this book."

—Children's book evaluator

"This is a wonderful visual story of what fear can do in our lives." —Editor
