Wemberly worried about everything.
And things in between.
Then it was time for school to start.And Wemberly worried even more.
If you ever worry (or know someone who does), this is the book for you.
Kevin Henkes is the author and illustrator of many books for children of all agesamong them are Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse, Chrysanthemum, and Wemberly Worried. He was awarded the Caldecott Medal for Kitten's First Full Moon, a Caldecott Honor for Owen, and a Newbery Honor for Olive's Ocean. He lives with his family in Madison, Wisconsin.
