...an intense exploration of fear. Each page features one phobia...fear of going to bed....fear of bathing. Most existential are whereamiophobia (fear of getting lost) and isolophobia (fear of solitude)...Timorous Mouse doesn't vanquish the worries but does weather the dangers, revealing a tiny final smile at an unexpected turnabout.
