When a new baby is born it's difficult to tell if it will grow up to be big or small or brave or scared of the dark and spiders. So sometimes babies get the wrong name.
It’s the same with dogs.
So when the Claybourne-Willments, who should have been called the Smiths, got Fearless as a little puppy, it seemed a good name for him.
Except Fearless wasn’t.
How does Fearless finally live up to his name? By accident, of course!

Comments about Fearless:
Originally had as a library book but my daughter loved it so much I had to buy it - pretty sure she knows it off by heart.
Due to the theme in it, I believe it could upset/scare younger children but is humorous enough to gloss over the scary bits.
