very worried walrusWalrus is very worried. Walrus is a worry-wart. You know the old saying about making a mountain out of a molehill? Walrus does that and much more.

He wants to ride a bike. He’s afraid he’ll fall off.

Then he’ll need a doctor … And medicine … And bandages …. Or stitches.

Or, he’ll hit a tree – and need an ambulance … which gets stuck in a traffic jam … and then …

His worries go on and on. Each worry is bigger and more catastrophic than the last.

Cheerful friend, Pig, convinces Walrus it’s a beautiful day and he’ll have fun riding the bike.

Walrus is persuaded to give it a try. He does hit a tree and fall down. But all his troublesome worries are for naught. He is fine. He discovers he didn’t need to worry after all.

This is one book in the Sweet Pickles series; where each animal, from A to Z (perfect for an A to Z blog challenge!), “gets into a pickle because of an all too human personality trait.”
