Tigger on the Couch: The Neuroses, Psychoses, Disorders and Maladies of our Favourite Childhood Characters
by Laura James

Dedicated to "all those bravely battling a psychological disorder and to the professionals who work tirelessly to help them" this inventive approach to personality disorders makes a valuable contribution to destigmatising mental illness. 

It is not a psychiatric textbook; it is accessible and appealing to everyone. It reveals how fairy tales can teach behaviour and values that children should avoid; it also shows how fairy tales can highlight core values and attributes that children should emulate. 

This is a fascinating read and may well send you back to scrutinise the flaws, problems and behaviour of the characters in your own favourite childhood books.
