The World’s Bravest

Alexander Karim, Malin Karim , illustrated by Andrea Femerstrand

What is it like to be scared of everything – but still be forced to do the scariest thing of all?

Alba lives on a faraway island with her wild siblings. She is scared of almost everything. After a violent storm, all of her siblings disappear and she is suddenly alone in the cottage with her goat Yanko. Together, they have to leave to find Alba’s father. They embark on a long journey, facing perils and scary incidents along the way, but they make new friends and what an adventure it’s been! And maybe courage is not about not being scared – but about daring to try anyway!

A warm and funny book for reading aloud, about stepping out of someone else’s shadow and finding your own strength.
