'Raymund the Fear Monster' is a powerful story that can help children understand that even if a child is scared they can take action and confront their fears and do the very thing they find hard to do. Megan Higginson conveyed a message of hope, courage and strength in the face adversity. I highly recommend this story for parents, carers, teachers and Child Workers.'

“A fun story that makes me want to face my own fears – Raymund will be a hero to kids everywhere!” – Adam Wallace, international best-selling author
'This is absolutely incredible! Does your child struggle with fears, or do you as an adult? Then this is the book for you!
Also, Ester’s illustrating genius strikes again! And dare I say it, reaches even new heights!' Joanne Creed, children's author
'This book has a strong message to readers that you don’t have to be the biggest or strongest person in order to be brave. It’s not your outside persona that count, but what is inside. The illustrations are stunning. As well as what you see at first, there are so many extra little details for readers to explore that add to the story. Whether your kids have fears or are confident, this is one that should be added to your library.' Melissa Gijsbers, children's author
'The best children's books speak to the child in us long after we've grown up. Raymund and the Fear Monster is one of those books. In it, there is a monster that feeds on fear, a monster that grows and shrinks according to how much fear Raymund and the people in his village give it. Full of fun text with sounds, smells and gross stuff to keep kids entertained, and whimsical fantastical illustrations that feed the imagination. The Megan Higginson (writer) and Ester de Boer (illustrator) combination pays off brilliantly.' May-Kuan Lim
