Not Afraid of Dogs

By Susanna Pitzer; Larry Day (Illustrator)

Walker Childrens, Hardcover, 9780802780676, 32pp.

Publication Date: May 16, 2006


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.
