Dare to be scared with Scaredy Squirrel! Scaredy Squirrel can never leave his home because there are so many frightening things outside it: he’s frightened of germs, green Martians and the unknown. To keep himself safe, Scaredy Squirrel has an Emergency Kit but, when the unexpected happens, will it be enough? A fun look at how to overcome fears.

Synopsis

Scaredy Squirrel by Melanie Watt

A truly nutty adventure to make children and adults laugh out loud!

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!
