Good news! I’m proud to announce that I’m Not Afraid of This Haunted House is now available in Japanese. And just in time for Halloween!
About the book: Simon Lester Henry Strauss isn’t afraid of anything! Not witches. Or ghosts. Or ghouls. The creaky old haunted house doesn’t scare him. When his friends all run out in fear, Simon Lester bravely proclaims he’s not scared one bit. But in the end . . . everyone is scared of something. Even Simon Lester.
