Swimming pools.

The crossing guard at school.  


But a boy and his two dogs soon learn that nothing is as scary as it seems when you are surrounded by those you love.

What People Say about Fun Book of Scary Stuff:

"Green-faced witches, forest trolls, and a shark make appearances in this frank assessment of scary things, conducted by a child, a bull terrier, and a pug. ...With humor and logic in their arsenal, Jenkins and Yum demystify fear in this encouraging show-and-tell."      -- Publishers Weekly 

"It’s rewarding to see that bull terrier get the smug scared right out of him, but more rewarding is the boy’s realization that he can be brave—and that everyone gets the willies." -- The Horn Book
