Meet Kylie Bell, the not-so-tallest one in the first grade. Kylie Bell may be small, but she never lets size get her down. Nope. Kylie Bell is brave.
But when that bully-boy Rusty Jacks slithers around her like a half-starved rattlesnake, what is Kylie Bell to do? Can she keep hold of her courage, not to mention her good manners?
The author Dianna Hutts Aston states that as a child she was afraid of clowns, ducks, and oral reports. Since then she has learned that no one is born with courage. As Kylie Bell finds out, courage takes practice.
