Anna Kang's fuzzy purple and brown creatures from You Are (Not) Small and That's (Not) Mine are back in this silly and delightful picture book about facing your fears. There are a lot of things to be scared of out there: tubs of hairy spiders, pits of lava, or (eeek!) snakes! But not a roller coaster! Roller coasters are fun! Uh oh, until there is a snake riding on the coaster with you... However, our two brave friends still hop on the coaster for a hilariously illustrated adventure. I love how this book ends. Not in a sticky sweet ending of I'm glad we were so brave, but in a realization that things like roller coasters ARE scary ("The scariest!"), but that doesn't mean they can't also be fun and worth a second ride.
Courage Over Fear
