What do heights, spiders, flying, clowns and mice all have in common? Well, if any of them made you shudder, you already know that these are all common phobias. We all get a little scared sometimes, but if you’re feeling brave, our latest series takes you on a tour of our deepest, darkest fears…

Enter the Museum of Phobias. With extreme exhibits sent in from all around the world. turn the page to take the tour as we explore the terrifying exhibits find out what frightening things people have banished to the museum’s dusty corridors. Each book explores why we have fears, what the difference is between a fear and a phobia, and some famous scaredy-cats too!

The Harrowing Human Collection

From witches in the woods to… erm, men with beards, we certainly have some funny phobias when it comes to each other. It can’t be fun at the beach if you’ve got genuphobia, and if you’ve got odontophobia then people are most likely scared of you.. or your breath! And don’t worry – this title makes us feel a little phobophobic too…
