Kids Can Press

Scaredy Squirrel Makes a Friend (Kids Can Press) is Mélanie Watt’s second book about the neurotic rodent with a knack for assessing risk and crafting plans. Scaredy seeks the perfect friend but his fear of being bitten means that only toothless creatures qualify. When Scaredy encounters a pleasant and playful dog, he realizes that an ideal pal can come in surprising (and teeth-bearing) form. Watt’s bold and unique charcoal pencil and acrylic artwork accompanies her text. This comical tale subtly conveys the message that personality is more important than looks. mRb
