WINNER: 2017 QLD Literary Awards, Children's Fiction WINNER: 8-10 category 2018 Speech Pathology Awards SHORT-LISTED: CBCA Book of the Year, Younger Readers, 2018 It struck Henry that perhaps he was waiting for the exact right moment to be daring and brave. The exact right moment where he felt no worry at all, not one tiny flicker. But what if that moment never came? Henry Hoobler is a reluctant adventurer who is worried about his summer holiday camping at the beach: bugs, spiders, snakes, stingers, blue-ringed octopi or sharks. Worst of all, his family and friends are pushing him to ride his new silver bike - without training wheels. But when Henry meets Cassie, he discovers that courage is there to be found when you have a friend who is straight-up and true. A joyous, heart-warming story from the much-loved author of My Big Birkett.
