Do you know about the MOUSE who LIVES in your chest?

That CHEEKY creature that scampers around your heart gnawing at your CONFIDENCE, making your heart beat FASTER every time you are faced with a CHALLENGING SITUATION,

or face the UNKNOWN, or tread NEW paths…Its only MISSION is to make you believe:


Want to know how YOU can BEAT that RASCAL?

Between these covers is the story of a young girl who takes on various AVATARS

to finally put this little devil in his right place.



"Misha's challenges growing up are reminiscent of what we all experience when we feel

self-doubt find its way in our hearts, but what she has created as a result of taming that mouse in her chest is truly phenomenal and an inspiration for young children who

struggle to find their voice".
