Avi is an anxious avocado. He worries about EVERYTHING always wondering what-if? what-then? what’s going to happen? and ends up avoiding everything that frightens him. Until one day when he hears an unusual sound outside his kitchen window.... what possibly could that THUMP! THUIMP! THUD! be? Fear swells in the pit of his stomach, but it occurs him. What is the worst thing that could happen if he just dares himself to face his fears?

Versatile enough for family's reading, classroom or school counselor use, readers will be rooting for Avi as he navigates situations that he once avoided. Avi's confidence builds, bolstered by the support of friends and energized by a proven method for dealing with social anxiety, Avi takes the plunge and faces his fears head on!
