Newman’s loud colors and blocky figures suit the elemental simplicity of the quick sequence of buildups and climactic shouts. A pair of large, cut-out, yellow O’s on the cover that turn out to be crocodile eyes make a suitably melodramatic first impression. A natural as a high-volume storytime ice breaker...

Synopsis

Scared you! This little mouse thinks he's the bravest animal around, but it seems that he's not the only one. . .
All the animals are keen to show off their bravery—from the crocodile with his mighty jaws, to the tiger with her scary claws! But who will be the bravest of them all?

Ben Newman is an award-winning illustrator who spends the majority of his time collaborating on the Professor Astro Cat children's books with his longtime friend and scientist, Dr. Dominic Walliman, which are published by Flying Eye Books and have been translated into eighteen languages.
