Fantastic Fin Faces His Fears is a charming book that tells about Fin who is a young boy that has to face his fears. Like other children, he sometimes becomes afraid. In this book, Fantastic Fin uses his brain to come up with something cool. He uses his imagination to transform himself into many things: a super-hero, a dinosaur, a knight, and other characters. When he becomes one of these large and brave characters it enables him to feel he has the power to face any fear that may come his way. He empowers himself and then he can be brave and also help others around him.
In the back of the book there are pages to help children where they can write down their fears and work out how to face them. There are also parent notes to let them use the book to help their child feel empowered. The author also has a free 17 page activity pack at http://www.jessicabowers.co.uk/.
