Mr. Brave front cover

Mr. Brave is the bravest person in the world, or so everyone thinks. He is brave enough to save Mr. Messy from the ocean, but he is not brave enough to go on a tightrope with Little Miss Somersault after he discovers that it is about to split into two. Little Miss Trouble watches this and tells everybody that Mr. Brave is not brave at all, and then she dares him to go the tightrope. He remembers that he is supposed to be at a tea party with Little Miss Bossy and runs away. Little Miss Trouble says that he is not brave because he ran away, but she realizes that he is brave because he was late to the tea party and was willing to face reprimands from Little Miss Bossy. She thought in a moment and said "Gosh, he is brave after all!"
