Editorial Reviews


"Experiencing this book feels like sitting in a quiet corner with a trusted friend, having a conversation that affirms your faith in yourself and the world. Meera Lee Patel has taken the big, scary concept of fear and crafted a personal, yet universal love letter to it, made all the more beautiful by her ethereal, yet down-to-earth illustrations."
--Emily McDowell, Creator of Emily McDowell Studio and author of There is No Good Card For This
“Meera Lee Patel is the real deal: philosopher, poet, artist, and emotion-driven intellectual. It can be so easy to let your fears rule your life without noticing it, and so hard to figure out how to stop doing it. Incredibly, this simple, beautiful book offers a real remedy. Patel does more than just lay out a problem and a solution; she takes you by the hand and helps you feel your way closer and closer to a life where you can finally breathe freely and experience the world the way you were born to do. When you're done reading this book, somehow the whole world feels so much more exciting and welcoming. I love this book so much it hurts!" 
--Heather Havrilesky, Ask Polly columnist for New York magazine and author of How to Be a Person in the World 
"You find certain books and certain books find you. Consider this the latter. Meera makes fear that kid you thought was too cool to be your friend, but turned out to be more like you than you could have imagined. My Friend Fear is a beautiful, visual journey into your mind and heart with a very gentle and generous narrator."  
--Aparna Nancherla, writer, comedian, and actress

"Meera Lee Patel has this ability to take us through some of our deepest and darkest feelings so we emerge on the other end feeling full and at peace. When Meera writes about fear, she does so in a way that feels like a warm hug, a silent nod from a friend, a soft whisper that she’s been there too, and a jubilant shout that she’s here for you now and always." 
--Jonny Sun, author and illustrator, everyone's a aliebn when ur a aliebn too
