Wemberly worried about everything every day of the week. She worried about her parents, a tree falling on her house, a crack in the living room, the noise the radiator made, the jungle gym, her doll Petal and school. When school came she was worried about her appearance, her teacher, kids making fun of her and she worried about no one else bring a doll to school like she was. But to her surprise when she went to school their was another girl named Jewel that also carried a doll named Nibblet. Jewel and Wemberly became bestfriends and guess what Wemberly was not worried anymore.
This is a good fantasy book because it relate how being worried is normal and sometime its can be silly to worry so much. The character is a mouse which is given human like qualities which help the younger children be engaged more but also helps them relate to how the mouse is feeling. ( )

Age Appropriateness: 4-8 years
Review:This is relatively simple story however what happened to Wemberly can often happen to kids, even adults. The mouse worries about everything: big things, like whether her parents might disappear in the middle of the night; little things, like whether she'll spill grape juice on her toy rabbit, Petal; and things in between, And the following, Wemberly stated to worry about her school. She is afraid no one would like her and she would have no friends in class. Happily, Miss Peachum introduces her to a kindred spirit right away. Jewel doesn't have spots, but she is wearing stripes and holding a doll. As Wemberly plays with her new friend, she still worries, but no more than usual.
This is fantasy story because it used a little animal-A mice as a person to keep the story moving. ( )

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0688170277, Hardcover)

Wemberly the mouse worries about everything: big things, like whether her parents might disappear in the middle of the night; little things, like whether she'll spill grape juice on her toy rabbit, Petal; and things in between, like whether she might shrink in the bathtub. What she is more worried about than anything else, however, is her first day at the New Morning Nursery School: "What if no one else has spots? What if no one else wears stripes? What if no one else brings a doll? What if the teacher is mean? What if the room smells bad?" Happily, Miss Peachum introduces her to a kindred spirit right away. Jewel doesn't have spots, but she is wearing stripes and holding a doll. As Wemberly plays with her new friend, she still worries, but no more than usual. ("And sometimes even less.")

Kevin Henkes, well-loved creator of the award-winning Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse, gets to the heart of a child's feelings like no one else can. Young worrywarts (and their parents) will see themselves in Wemberly, and be relieved that she, too, worries about playground equipment ("Too rusty. Too loose. Too high."), sure-to-be-inhabited cracks in the wall, whether she will be the only butterfly in the Halloween parade, and, of course, whether school will be dreadful in every way. Henkes's Lilly-style illustrations are sweet, expressive, and loaded with funny, inventive details that invite close perusal with every reading. (Wemberly's roller-blading grandma, for example, is wearing a T-shirt that says "Go with the flow.") We're not worried about whether this book will become a classic--it will! (Ages 4 to 8) --Karin Snelson
