Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

"I am very brave," Sheila Rae said, patting herself on the back. She wasn't afraid of anything - not thunder, not lightning, not the big black dog at the end of the block. And when she wanted to walk home a new way and Louise wouldn't, she called her sister a scaredy-cat and set out alone.

But all the bravado in the world failed to help when Sheila Rae found herself lost. Luckily, her sister was not far behind ...

A warm and loving story of sibling sympathy and support.
