Bernard Waber, who has written eight delightful books about Lyle the Crocodile, a little boy named Ira, and a firefly named Torchy, is the author of more than seventeen picture books for children. Widely praised by reviewers for his ability to describe common family problems, he is best loved by children for his freeflowing humor and gentle characters.
In this poignant yet entertaining volume, versatile author and
artist Waber takes a look at the various ways in which kids, the
occasional grown-up and one endearing canine display bravery.
