Seymour, the Formerly Fearful
Seymour Goldfarb has a big problem. He’s afraid of everything! He dreads roller coasters and the beach. He refuses to go to Camp Sportahama. He won’t even learn to ride a bike.
Quick thinking helps Seymour hide his fears from the world. But things change the summer his cousin Pessach comes to visit from Israel. Big, confident Pessach is strong and fearless. His idea of a good time is parachuting out of a plane, which he did as an Israeli paratrooper. And he demands that Seymour show him how Americans have fun! How will Seymour ever survive the summer?
