Out of Nowhere is a beautifully illustrated, touching children’s picture book about facing fears, dealing with anxiety and learning to explore the world.

Cosmo is afraid. Of everything. He spends his days jumping at loud noises, recoiling from scary shadows and hiding from new people. So you can imagine how he felt when a huge, menacing green spot appears as if from nowhere. Too terrified to do anything else, Cosmo hides away from the spot and imagines all the awful things it could be…

Luckily, Hogweed isn’t afraid of anything! She loves exploring new things and sees the best in every new experience that comes her way. When Hogweed sees the green dot she knows that it must be something wonderful. And she’s going to find out what it is. And this time, Cosmo is going to come with her and face his fears once and for all.

This is a story of different perspectives, overcoming those feelings of worry and uneasiness, facing your fears and finding out that the world isn’t such a bad place afterall of all if you’re ready to explore.
