This boy's backyard doesn't have a plain old baby pool, sandbox, and lawn chair; it has an ocean teeming with pirates, a dangerous race course to conquer, and a jungle filled with wild animals just waiting to attack. This rambunctious hero faces every challenge with daring valor, saving the day for himself and his trusty canine sidekick. But when a fierce dragon knocks him off of his horse, his lady brave (mom, of course) comes to the rescue-he can't save them all!
A celebration of the mighty imagination of childhood (and security of ever-present moms), this boisterous story is sure to inspire adventures galore for every future superhero. Lynne Cravath's paintings seamlessly portray the shifts from reality to fantasy as Marsha Hayles' energetic verse propels the action.
