Read full description of the books:I love the other Scaredy Squirrel books and I liked this one too, but I’m not quite as fond of is as the other 5 books.
I really enjoy Scaredy Squirrel, initials S.O.S. for a good reason.
This book seems to be longer and have more text than the other books. I think it works best for independent readers reading it to themselves.
I can recommend it to slightly older children and adults, especially those who celebrate Christmas, and those who’ve enjoyed the other books in the series, and it would make a good Christmas gift or a gift for an occasion that happens before but close to (within a couple months of) December 25th. I wouldn’t recommend it for very young children; I don’t think they’ll find it amusing.
There are lots of great little jokes on many of the pages and it is a great idea, but I just didn’t find much of it hilarious. The list format kind of distanced me. I did like that it has chapters. And the illustrations are cute, and work for this book/series.
Grinch that I am: only 2 ½ stars, upped to 3 because, after all, it is the wonderful Scaredy Squirrel, and there is some good material in here.
Read information about the authorIt was in a design class taught by Michèle Lemieux at the University of Quebec in Montreal that author and illustrator Mélanie Watt created her first picture book, Leon the Chameleon, which was later published by Kids Can Press. Watt went on to create several more books, including the Learning with Animals collection and Augustine, which was named an ALA Notable Children's Book. Watt has also illustrated Where Does a Tiger-Heron Spend the Night? and Bearcub and Mama, which won the 2006 IRA Teachers' Choices Project.
Mélanie's best known book Scaredy Squirrel, has won many awards including the Ruth and Sylvia Schwartz Children's Book Award for Children's Picture Book and the Amelia Frances Howard-Gibbon Illustrator's Award. The release of Scaredy Squirrel Makes a Friend, was met with enthusiastic reviews and incredible sales, confirming the arrival of kid lit's newest superstar.
Chester,Chester's Back! and Chester's Masterpiece are about a megalomaniac cat who is every bit the antithesis to Scaredy. Chester has already become a bestseller and shows the breadth and creativity of Mélanie Watt.
Scaredy returns to take a few more tentative steps out of his comfort zone in Scaredy Squirrel at the Beach and Scaredy Squirrel at Night. Mélanie has often noted how the Scaredy Squirrel books helped her work out her own insecurities and fears, as the success of these titles has required her to venture out into the unknown, and like Scaredy she has found the experience truly uplifting.
Mélanie currently resides near Montreal, Quebec.
