From the Publisher
There are a lot of things to be scared of, that’s for sure. There are mean-looking dogs, booming thunderstorms, spiders and other creepy crawly things. All this scary stuff may make you want to hide under your covers and never come out. Hiding is easy, but will it really make everything better?
