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!

Not what I expected


The story was not what I thought it would be and a book for older readers than my kids. Most likely to be read occasionally.
