Wordyhag lives in Southslope with her seven daughters. Anna and Berta, Cita and Dora, the twins Eve and Frida, and little Gerda do whatever crosses their minds. Their mother certainly guides and teaches them as they discover the world, but isn’t in the habit of forbidding them from doing anything. Deep in the shady brush of Northslope lives Worryhag with her one and only daughter, Poppy. Poppy’s mother starts to worry whenever her daughter stays out to late, goes to the seaside, or dresses too scantily. There are quite many things the young girl is forbidden from doing. However, one day, the inevitable takes place: Wordyhag's rascally daughters and Worryhag’s cautious Poppy meet…

Kadri Hinrikus’ book Don’t Worry About Me is a poetic tale of friendship, loyalty, and overcoming fears.
