A tribute to the bravery all children achieve in dreams and aspire to in waking.

You have not seen this book before, though in it are recognizable elements of classic adventure tales and allegory as well as the look of comic-book story-telling. Young Sammy cannot walk, yet he must struggle to his feet to vanquish an overpowering foe and then escape with a prize to safety.

In pictures of unforgettable drama, the small outwits the fearsome, the boy confronts his terror and, with consummate courage, he succeeds at the mission of his life.
