Scaredy Squirrel never sleeps at night because of all the things like ghosts and dragons and fairies that might frighten him. Instead he keeps busy all night long. But tiredness creates its own terrors…Enjoy Scaredy Squirrel’s multiple plans to conquer the night time! As ever from this wonderful author and illustrator you're sure to have a very nutty adventure.


Scaredy Squirrel at Night by Melanie Watt

Scaredy never sleeps – sleep might mean bad dreams about dragons, ghosts, vampire bats and polka-dot monsters. Of course he 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 but exhaustion takes its toll and Scaredy just has to find a way to have sweet dreams.

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!
