From the Just for Boys series...

Winner of the Dorothy Canfield Fisher Book Award.

Ezzie claimed that he could stay alive in the jungle forever. According to him, every jungle emergency had a simple solution. Whether it was Emergency One - a hunter stumbling into quicksand - or Emergency Two - an attack by an unfriendly lion, Ezzie could handle it. In fact, Ezzie knew the answer to seventeen emergencies. But still, there was one emergency even Ezzie couldn't face!

WOULD YOU RATHER BE A COWARD... OR A CANIDATE FOR THE EMERGENCY WARD?

Mouse Fawley has just done something very, very dumb. No kid in his right mind would out out of his way to enrage Marv Hammerman, the school bully---but when Mouse saw the picture of a Neanderthal man, he just had to write Marv's name under it. Too bad Marv was standing right behind him. Now Mouse has to choose between being on the run and being killed.
