Praise for My Monster and Me

* "This accessible tale will empower children to identify and speak about their worries.... Charming and effective."—Kirkus Reviews, starred review
"What a sweet, accessible way to bring a conversation about panic attacks into a child’s understanding! [...] Hussain, who won The Great British Bake Off, seems to understand children just as much as cooking, granting them a path to coping, without ever belitting the sources of their fear."—School Library Journal
