28 Tricks for a Fearless Grade 6 by Catherine Austen. (James Lorimer and Company, 2014).
Got fear? Get laughing.
Afraid of dancing at the school dance? Dave Davidson has tricks to fix that: sprain an ankle, eat expired food to get sick, or even get yourself suspended for a few days. Terrified of the public speaking competition? Dave has tricks for that, too: pick up a virus, forge a note from a therapist, or become a punk rock singer and lose your voice.
Get to know fear-slayer Dave Davidson and all his friends as they make their hare-brained, fun, and fearless way through the ups and downs of sixth grade. (A boyish companion to the award-winning 26 Tips for Surviving Grade 6.)
