A heartwarming story about facing your fears

Toby doesn't like heights. That's why he always carries a parachute with him. His parachute makes him feel safe when he has to climb down from his bunk bed or when he's playing on the swings. But one day, Toby's cat gets stuck in a tree, and it's up to Toby to rescue him. With the help of his parachute, Toby reaches his cat and lowers him safely to the ground. But now Toby is stuck in the tree, unless he can conquer his fears. . . .

This compelling book, perfectly complemented by Matt Ottley's expressive artwork, lends a sympathetic ear to children's fears while simultaneously assuring readers that they can overcome them.
