Mama and Papa Scaredy Cat are not your ordinary felines. They're terrified of everything, and so they do nothing. They don't get dressed. They don't open mail. They don't even watch sunsets. Thankfully, Baby Scaredy Cat sees that not being brave at all is just plain silly....But can she help her scared parents find the courage to look at the brighter side of things?
