Overview

By day, Ben is one brave brother--but when night falls, even the wildest boy sometimes needs protecting by his big sis. The third hit picture book by the best-selling Funke and award-winning Meyer.

Brave as a lion, strong as an elephant, Ben is a fearless young boy. When it comes to protecting his big sister, Anna, nothing can stand in his way! Gallantly he spends his day battling moldy green ghosts, slime-belching monsters, and all sorts of ferocious beasts. But when the day is over and darkness falls, Ben suddenly doesn't feel quite so brave. Sometimes, he realizes, it's the big sister who does the protecting.

Featuring Meyer's witty, whimsical artwork and Funke's deft balance of humor, emotion, and truth, this is the perfect bedtime read for rambunctious brothers and sisters.

Editorial Reviews

bn.com
This witty, whimsical picture book from Cornelia Funke (of Inheart/Inkspell fame) is funny and heartwarming -- and a perfect bedtime read for rambunctious brothers and sisters. In it, Ben is a "brave" little boy who fights all sorts of fearsome creatures throughout the day, "protecting" his older sister. But it's his sister who is his protector when he is scared at night. It's a charming story -- filled with fun illustrations showing Ben's vivid imagination at work. And Funke's text is just right for little ones.
