A grandma teaches her granddaughter how to overcome fears by imagining funny situations

A little girl confides in her grandma about her fears: pirates, monsters, the big dog down the lane ... Each time her grandma suggests a way to overcome her fear by imagining funny situations.

Eventually the girl tells her biggest fear - that her grandma will go away and leave her forever. The grandma tells her that she will always live in her heart ... and she can imagine her in a yellow polkadot bikini if she likes!

A funny and sweet story about a little girl, her grandma, and the power of humour and imagination to dispel fears and anxieties.
