Scaredy Squirrel by Melanie Watt

Look what arrived today from Amazon!

Do you know Scaredy Squirrel? This is the brand-new, fifth book in the series, and it doesn't disappoint! Scaredy is a worrywart, so he plans for every possible scenario in potentially risky situations.  The books are filled with Scaredy's preparation diagrams, lists, tables, and graphs. It's really more for kids 1st grade and up; the humor will be lost on younger kids. And humorous it is! For instance, item F on Scaredy's to-do list is to "practice breathing (to blow up balloons/blow out candles)." Then among the items in his party planning folder is a line graph showing his breathing practice progress. Of course, things never go according to plan, but they always have a way of working out.

Melanie Watt writes other books, too. She has another series about Chester, a cat who wants to take over as author and illustrator of Melanie's books. Each of them tries to take the upper hand in the storytelling process, and Melanie always ends up putting Chester in his place.

I can't believe I haven't shared about Melanie Watt's books here before. Check them out - you're sure to love them!
