A completely barmy picture book but it’s guaranteed to get a lot of laughs from both parent and child as they read it together. It’s just as well squirrels don’t ever meet sharks or martians or tarantulas in real life otherwise we humans would never get to see them.

Synopsis

Scaredy Squirrel by Melanie Watt

There are dangers all around - germs, green martians, sharks. But Scaredy Squirrel is well-prepared - or thinks he is... He has packed an Emergency Kit with anti-bacterial soap, sticking plaster and a parachute.

About the Author

Q&A with Melanie Watt:

How did you get involved with children’s books?
Through Michèle Lemieux, my illustration teacher in university. One of our assignments was to create a book about color. I decided to write a story about a chameleon to help explain complementary colors to children. I later sent my book project, Leon the Chameleon, to Kids Can Press.

What was your training or schooling?
I have a college degree in graphic design and a bachelors of arts in graphic design from the Université du Québec à Montréal.

Do you have any tips for young creators?
If you find something that you enjoy and are passionate about, don’t hesitate to follow that path. It’s amazing what you can accomplish by focusing on things you love doing! I was in administration for two years before I realized that it wasn’t for me and that I wasn't motivated. When you’re in an environment where you don’t fit in, you start to think that you are the one with the problem. It can be very discouraging! When you’re in an environment where you feel comfortable and where you can contribute something, that’s when you feel good about yourself!

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

It’s really exciting to read and review new books, thrilling to see my reviews online and I love finding the final published copies on sale.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to
