Billy is a worrier has worries about everything in life, he worries so much that cant sleep. As any young person should do with such a troublesome phobia he seeks help from an adult, namely his Grandma. His Grandma soon explains that she had similar issues when she was a child and one such possible solution to aid him was to make worry dolls. Interestingly enough there is a nice explanation about worry dolls at the end of the book, about the origin and history.

Billy has a unique take on these dolls which is quite amusing. A funny book with great illustrations which will help any child with a similar disposition to worrying.
