Scaredy Squirrel’s LIKES may include living in a nut tree, but his DISLIKES include the great outdoors! A re-release of the classic Scaredy Squirrel picture book for fans of Jory John & Pete Oswald’s The Good Egg.

Scaredy Squirrel is not too comfortable with the idea of camping—unless it’s on his couch! There will be no mosquitoes, skunks or zippers to worry about when he watches a show about the joys of camping on his brand-new TV. But first Scaredy must find an electrical outlet, and that means going into the woods! Will this nutty worrywart’s plans prepare him for the great outdoors, or will his adventure end up as a scary story told around the campfire?

To coincide with the launch of the new Scaredy Squirrel graphic chapter book series, this hilarious Scaredy picture book adventure is making a timely and triumphant return!

REISSUE OF A CLASSIC: Fan favorite Scaredy Squirrel Goes Camping has been out of print for several years but will be available just in time for the release of Scaredy’s new graphic chapter book series.
