When Jack hurts his ankle, he tries really hard not to cry. He's not a baby! Surely he can be braver than that?


Jack and Billie are going exploring! They have made a hideout and are going to spy on the Feather Monsters.

The only problem is, Billie is more adventurous than Jack. He doesn’t want to walk across the bridge that they made. It is just too dangerous. Billie thinks he is just being a scaredy cat!

Jack is finally convinced to give it a go, but things go wrong. He shouldn’t have listened to Billie - he just isn't that brave!

But the events that unfold after this may prove him wrong...

Another delightful story for your young readers in the Hey Jack series.
