Dad isn't afraid of anything . . . except, that is, for one thing. While spending a day on the beach together, a small child learns that his dad isn't afraid of very much--sharks, crazy crabs, angry dogs, and giant waves don't scare him one bit. But there is one thing that Dad is... afraid of and there's only one person who can help him overcome it! They must be brave heroes together in this fun, gorgeously illustrated story about the special bond between father and son.Read more
