The Lovereading4Kids comment

A wild adventure with a gentle undertone of sibling love. The illustrations are full of character, wit, and child-like imagination. A great picture book to settle those wild brothers and sisters at bedtime.

Synopsis

The Wildest Brother by Cornelia Funke

Ben is a fearless young boy - as brave as a lion, as strong as an elephant. Nothing can distract him from his tireless task of protecting his big sister, Anna. He gallantly spends his day fending off mouldy green ghosts, slime-burping monsters, robbers and wild beasts. But when the day is over and darkness descends, Ben stops feeling quite so brave - and realises that sometimes it is his sister who does the protecting.
