Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0802780679, Hardcover)

Daniel is the bravest boy of all!

Daniel isn't afraid of spiders. He isn't afraid of snakes. He isn't even afraid of thunderstorms. And no matter what his sister says, he's certainly not afraid of dogs -- he just doesn't like them. But there's no avoiding them when he comes home and his mother is babysitting his aunt's dog.

Susanna Pitzer's humorous look into the nature of courage, fear, and friendship has a touching outcome for both the brave and the frail of heart, with expressive illustrations by Larry Day.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:19:05 -0400)

Young Daniel must confront his fear of dogs when his mom dog sits his aunt's pet.
