It's time for Little Rat to start sailing lessons. But there's a big problem--she's afraid of water She's scared she'll fall in, she's scared her boat will sink, and she's sure the other students will laugh at her. Isn't it lucky, then, that Little Rat ends up with an instructor who helps her realize she is braver than she thinks?
From the mother-daughter team of Molly Bang and Monika Bang-Campbell, this is the first in a series of easy readers starring the irrepressible Little Rat.
