Amanda et ses amis sont des aventuriers intr#65533;pides. Ils font des courses d'avions, construisent de grands forts et domptent des animaux sauvages. Lorsque ses amis sugg#65533;rent de transformer un arbre en bateau de pirates, Amanda est incapable de monter #65533; bord (et de grimper dans l'arbre). Elle propose alors d'autres activit#65533;s pour #65533;viter d'avoir #65533; grimper, mais h#65533;las, sa tactique ne fonctionne pas. Ses amis insistent pour qu'elle les rejoigne. Ils semblent tellement s'amuser! Saura-t-elle surmonter sa peur? Elle va essayer.

Un r#65533;cit dr#65533;le et touchant sur le courage et la d#65533;termination.

Lou and her friends are brave adventurers. They race airplanes, build mighty forts and tame wild animals. But when her friends suggest they use the tree as a pirate ship, Lou doesn't think she can climb aboard (and up its branches). She proposes other activities to avoid climbing, but alas, none of these tactics work. Faced with the challenge, Lou gives it her best try. She tries with all her might to get up the tree, but ends up falling to the ground with a thud. Lou may concede to the tree for now, but there's always tomorrow to try anew.

A funny and heartwarming story on determination and courage.
