Find out how to build resilience and persevere with this fun guide to becoming a more confident you!

Have you ever felt like giving up? Maybe that homework was too difficult, swimming training was too tiring, you just couldn’t get the hang of how to ride a bike, or you felt too scared to try the new club. Everyone feels like that sometimes. That’s when you need to be extra strong and persevere. Persevering is about not giving up and getting things done even when they are difficult or boring.

This book will give you lots of advice about how you can persevere when things get tough, from making a plan to believing in yourself. Sound non-fiction advice will help you to learn the best ways to cope with change, not compare yourself with others and overcome any fears of failure. Short comic-strip stories featuring a diverse range of characters show you how to deal with different situations.

After a few false starts with a model agency and an accountant’s, Honor Head’s career as a children’s writer and editor began when she joined a small publisher producing comics featuring children’s television characters. The light bulb clicked on – Honor discovered she loved editing and writing for children – and has been burning brightly ever since. She has now published over 100 books for children on subjects as diverse as kitten care, famous outlaws, ghastly ghosts and totally awesome trucks as well as creating pop-ups, pull-outs and sticker books, and has edited many, many more. Honor now lives beside the seaside in Devon where she has fun helping out at the local museums organising family and school activities – a great way to meet her readers! On sunny days she heads for her favourite seaside cafe to eat cheese toasties and watch the dogs playing on the beach.
