Scaredy Squirrel

Scaredy Squirrel is my new favorite book. Written and illustrated by Melanie Watt, Scaredey Squirrel lives a safe and germ free existence in his tree, enjoying the view and eating nuts, until he is forced to face his fear of adventuring into the unknown. He uses his emergency kit - with parachute - and emergency contingency plan to avoid his worst fears at all costs. Playing dead until the threat passes also works well.

Things Scaredy Squirrel is afraid of:
  • Green Martians
  • Killer Bees
  • Tarantulas
  • Poison Ivey
  • Germs
  • Sharks
Caution: This book is not suitable for Green Martians.

Melanie Watt is an illustrator and writer who lives in Trois-Rivieres, Quebec. The original Scaredy Squirrel book was published in 2006 by Kids Can Press. Other titles include Scaredy Squirrel Makes a Friend, Scaredy Squirrel Goes to the Beach and Scaredy Squirrel at Night. I want the whole set.
