Really Brave Tim by John Prater

Billy, Millie and Suki are in Tim's den boasting about how brave they are. Poor Tim doesn't feel very brave; he is scared of the dark, he can't swim, he feels dizzy with heights and he isn't even sure he could eat a strong mint...However this deceptively simple story shows just how brave Tim really is, and young children will love the comeuppance of the big boasters who only ever imagine they are brave. Tim's bravery is the real thing.
