Synopsis

There's a lot to be scared of, that's for sure. There's the mean-looking dog next door and booming thunderstorms; there are spooky shadows in the corner of your room, and people who look different from you. All of this scary stuff can make you want to hide under your covers and never come out again. But hiding won't solve anything, and besides, maybe that dog only looks mean. This warm and reassuring book offers young readers the encouragement they need to face their fears and look forward to all the great experiences awaiting them.
