Tommy is tired of having adults telling him that he is too sensitive—he has ended up believing that this is a flaw he should be ashamed of. To make things worse, his schoolmates always pick on him—they call him names and never miss the chance to make fun of him whenever he gets mad, cries or simply is distracted watching out of the window. But one day, Tommy discovers that in his heart dwell six tiny pixies: Holly, Dazed, Shaky, Teary, Jerk, and Yacky—they are the ones responsible for his hypersensitivity!

He would do anything to get rid of them, but how? Renza, a little witch who lives in his fridge offer to help him, but the consequences are unpredictable…

This book goes straight to the heart of children and grown-ups talking about emotions and teaching the value of joy, surprise, fear, sadness, anger, and disgust.


Book abstract

His name was Tommy, he was nine years old—round chubby face, fair skin and a sprinkle of freckles on his nose […]. Like many kids his age, Tommy liked to play computer games and loved ice cream, French fries and chocolate cakes. Every year, he couldn’t wait to see the snow fall because he was a great skier. He wasn’t the best at school, but he tried to study just enough to avoid being embarrassed, unfortunately he didn’t always succeed.

“He is such a sensitive child”  always said the grown-ups when they talked about him.

“Bummer!”, thought Tommy, believing that it had to be something really, really bad. “I am really unlucky to have been born this way. “But what does it mean to be sensitive?”, he wondered, but never dared to ask for an explanation  […].
