Description

"You know monsters aren't real, right?"
Brave is easy in the sunshine. Brave is easy near Papa. But can Spencer the Bunny learn to be brave ALL the time--even when his big brothers try their best to scare him?

Spencer the Bunny's big brothers ALWAYS frighten him with scary monster stories. And the most terrifying beast of all is Frankenbunny, with his crusty fangs, flashing red eyes, and ginormous paws. But when Spencer discovers that his brothers made the whole thing up, he hatches a plan to turn the tables on them and conquer his own fears . . . forever.

Any child who has ever worried about a monster in the closet or felt scared in the dark will love this humorous story about learning to be brave.
