Superheroes Don't Get Scares - UK Edition Cover

Illustrated by Clare Elsom. Published by Ups!de Down Books, and Welbeck Children's. Published 3 September 2020.

Scared Maisie Brown dreams of being a fearless superhero - because they never get frightened, right? But when Dad explains that even the strongest, boldest and bravest hero can sometimes feel afraid, and that that's perfectly fine, Maisie realises that being a superhero is in us all.

With fun characters, rhyming text and an awesome message all about normalising fear and realising inner powers, this book is an amazing addition to any little hero's bookshelf.


I absolutely love this fun, brilliantly illustrated book.

Elizabeth Dale, children's book author

An important story for young readers, told in lively, dynamic rhyme, which matches the colourful and fun illustrations brilliantly.

Clare Helen Welsh, children's book author

An action-packed, fun filled story to reassure even the littlest of Superheroes

B B Taylor, author of The Vigilante Tooth Fairy
