This was an excellent story and narrated excellently as an audiobook.

It's about this kid who is afraid of a lot of things, especially going into the next grade (because of the bullies he knows who will be there). His friend decides to help him overcome his fears, and much of the book is their adventures in doing so.

The protagonists are struggle for racial equality as a theme throughout the story.

The story flows well. It's a pretty fun story—great for people who like stories about kids in their friendship, play, adventures and troubles. I think it could make a difference in the lives of many in helping them to overcome their fears at an early age.

Anyway, I highly recommend it.

It's a really short book (3 CDs).
