Scaredy never sleeps --- sleep might mean bad dreams about dragons, ghosts, vampire bats and polka-dot monsters. Our wide-eyed hero has a plan: stay awake all night, every night. Between counting stars, playing cymbals and making scrapbooks, he does a good job of avoiding dreamland. With exhaustion taking its toll, Scaredy comes face-to-face with an alarming horoscope prediction: All his dreams are about to come true! He must prepare for the worst and his Bad Dream Action Plan includes a fire extinguisher to snuff out dragons and a fan to blast away ghosts. But when disaster strikes, will Scaredy survive this ordeal? Will he thank his lucky stars? Will he find sweet dreams? Scaredy Squirrel at Night tackles a fear everyone --- and especially the young --- can relate to. It's a bedtime story to make light of kids' fear of the dark and a fable for our sleep-deprived society.

... kids will be amused by the lively, busy compositions packed with silly details ...
Booklist

... the sweet silliness with which Scaredy approaches his fear will make them laugh even as it eases them to nightmare-free slumber.
Kirkus Reviews

Children will be delighted as Scaredy Squirrel attempts to face his fear of falling asleep because of bad dreams, and they'll laugh at his absurd lists and action plans.
School Library Journal

Scaredy, with his oversized head and wide set of pearly whites, continues to radiate personality.
Publishers Weekly

Watt varies the narrative by devoting entire pages to Scaredy's ?to do? list ... the effect works --- and the book is more interactive for it. Older readers will also appreciate Watt's humorous attention to detail ...
