Summary

Sheila Rae, the Brave is a warm, humorous, and loving story of sibling sympathy and support. Just because Sheila Rae is older, she doesn't always know better!

This classic picture book about overcoming fear is written and illustrated by Kevin Henkes, the nationally bestselling and celebrated creator of Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse, Owen, and Kitten's First Full Moon.

"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.

"Children will love it."--School Library Journal

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Ages 4-6. Sheila Rae, a little mouse girl, prides herself on her fearlessness. The dark? She sleeps right through it. A boy in the schoolyard steals her jump rope? She hog-ties him with it. Thunder, lightning, riding a bike with no hands nothing fazes Sheila Rae. Her little sister, Louise, is in awe. But when Sheila Rae decides to take an unfamiliar route home, suddenly she doesn't feel quite so brave and begins to cry. Happily, Louise, who has followed her, does know the way. Now it's the younger sister who walks backward with her eyes closed and growls at stray dogs. Graciously, Sheila Rae tells Louise, `` . . . you are brave and you are fearless.'' ``We both are,'' Louise agrees. A seamless offering, this will both touch and tickle little ones. Henkes packs plenty of appeal into his watercolors outlined in pen and ink and coaxes maximum expressions from the thin lines and dots that serve as the mice's features. Let's see more of these spunky heroines. IC. Sisters Fiction / Courage Fiction [CIP] 86-25761"
