We all need a little help de-stressing every now and then. Make your own stress balls with this fun craft inspired by Jion Sheibani's book The Worries. They're the perfect size to pop in your pencil case or school bag!
Sohal worries about a lot of things: the dark, mutant sheep, being alone.

But when Sohal wakes up the next morning, he finds a set of funny, furry friends at the end of his bed...
Jion Sheibani grew up in Brighton and now lives in Paris with her family. She is a self-taught illustrator and studied English literature at Oxford University. One of her very first jobs was as an intern to Green Party MP Caroline Lucas in the European Parliament, and working on green issues definitely influenced Jion's first picture book, Lily & The Polar Bears. Jion was a teacher at Sciences Po and ENSAE in Paris before opening her own language school for children.
