The author, and creator of the award-winning Worry Woos, Andi Green, wanted to teach children to embrace their emotions, however unpleasant. Ignoring unhappy feelings won’t make them go away, and so “The Monster in the Bubble” and the other Worry Woo books strive to help children to open up and discuss their emotions.
