                              James Patterson, Chris Grabenstein

                              Summary
                              There are Scaredy Cats everywhere...

                              ghostly bully. Scaredy Cat demands they follow his rules or he'll cause all kinds of trouble-knock over lamps,

                              But Pasha and Poop are stubborn and rebellious. They won't follow the Scaredy Cat's ridiculous rules like all of
