The Lovereading4Kids comment

Little Scaredy Squirrel is back for a second set of adventures. As usual, he’s very frightened when he sees something new. This time, it’s a bedraggled little dog. After an exciting chase, Scaredy Squirrel realises that the dog is not so scary; he just wants to be friends. A warm heated book about overcoming shyness. Be sure to check out the brand new Scaredy Squirrel at the Beach.

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!
