539 (2016 #5). Parachute

by Danny Parker,
illustrated by Matt Ottley

Toby has a fear of heights, so he always carries his parachute around with him.  One day, though, his cat gets stuck in a tree....

Matt Ottley's colorful illustrations, rendered with "virtual oil paint, oil pastel, and pencil" (from the verso), exaggerates the perspective so the heights seem even more so for Toby.

Danny Parker's text is simple enough for both a read-aloud and an early reader, demonstrating how one might deal with fear.
