Top ten worriers in children’s literature

Georgia Pritchett is a TV comedy writer (for Veep, among others) and the author of the Wilf series of books. One of her ten favorite worriers in children’s literature, as shared at the Guardian:
Lola Rose in Lola Rose by Jacqueline Wilson

I could really have picked any Jacqueline Wilson character although I have a particular fondness for Lola. There is no other writer who tackles such difficult subjects with her characters facing genuinely frightening and difficult situations – and yet she does so with such warmth and reassurance. I’m sure she has done more to help anxious and frightened children than any other author.
