Sheila Rae, The Brave illustration will appear here.

The book is about a mouse named Sheila Rae. Sheila Rae thinks that she is the only brave one. She thinks her sister is afraid of everything. But Sheila Rae isn't afraid of anything, like thunder and lightning. She growls at cats and dogs and she can walk backwards. One day, Sheila Rae and her sister get lost in the forest. Sheila Rae gets scared, but her little sister finds the way home. Now they are both brave.

The character I like the best is Sheila Rae because she's not scared of anything or afraid to do anything. My favorite part is when she's pulling her sister at the end 'cause she's so happy to be home. I liked it that her sister got to be brave, too.

I think everyone would like it because it's got good pictures in it and maybe kids would like it because they are mice.
