That lovable little worrywart is back. And he’s as scaredy as ever! In his latest adventure, Scaredy Squirrel sets out to make The Perfect Friend. And once he’s spotted a perfectly safe candidate (with no teeth), Scaredy’s ready. Armed with a name tag, mittens, a mirror and a lemon, he’s prepared to make The Perfect First Impression. But just when every detail is under control, Scaredy’s Action Plan takes a surprising -- and "toothy" -- turn. Will he survive this ordeal? Will he find his kindred spirit? Will he discover the true meaning of friendship? Read Scaredy’s nutty story to find out ...

Mélanie Watt is an acclaimed children’s book author and illustrator. Her books include the Scaredy Squirrel, Chester and Learning With Animals series, Augustine, Leon the Chameleon and Have I Got a Book for You! She lives near Montreal.

Children will identify with Scaredy Squirrel's anxiety about making new friends. They will find his over-the-top fears amusing.

Publishers Weekly

Muted-color illustrations downplay Scaredy's anxieties and highlight the silliness of his over-the top tactics; playfully varied page designs add liveliness to a lighthearted story that doesn't take itself too seriously ...
Horn Book

The humor is silly enough that kids with their own scaredy tendencies won't feel preached at, and others will just appreciate the delicious ridiculousness that doesn't keep Scaredy for getting the friend he needs.
Bulletin of the Centre for Children's Literature

[A] true original on the picture book scene.
