(Own) Fearless by Colin Thompson - about a dog that looks scary and is named Fearless but who is actually soft, friendly and scared of everything. Examples of inference, verbal irony and personification.  "Fearless had to keep an eye on the broom because once... it tried to bite him." Visual literacy - meaning is made from both the pictures and the words ('man in a funny hat" is a robber in the picture).
