My Review:
I really liked this book. It’s such a fun story to read with a relatable message. Sheila Rae is brave as she will proudly tell you. Her no-care attitude is endearing in a way. But all that swagger she puts on comes back to bite her as she gets lost on her way home. Sheila Rae’s little sister, Louise, plays a loveable part in the story. This story really shows how even the bravest of us are afraid of something. It’s such a simple story with a simple premise but Kevin Henkes crafts it so well along with beautiful illustrations.
