About this title


Jen decides to deal with her fear of a big dog by scaring him back, but her attempt has an unexpected result.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-K-A quirky tale of a little girl's triumph over fear. An older brother describes his sister's fear of a neighborhood dog and his scheme to scare it into submission. Wearing a colorful Chinese Dragon costume, the boy, his friend, and his sister succeed in giving their families a fright, but not the dog. It wanders up to them, sniffs their feet, and promptly rolls over to be petted. The narrative voice is convincingly childlike, and Greder's pen-and-ink and acrylic illustrations have a simplicity that suits the text. Figures are flat, lacking dimension and detail, but emotions and actions are effectively conveyed. Young listeners will be reassured by the peaceful resolution, while older readers will be impressed by the children's creative efforts and amused by their unwitting success. Although Gleeson and Greder begin with a familiar premise, they have created an unusual and engaging book.
