Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Scaredy Squirrel never leaves his nut tree. It's way too dangerous out there. If danger comes along, he's well-prepared. However, his worst nightmare comes true and he finds himself out of his tree. But Scaredy soon discovers something really uplifting.

Review:

"It's an indication of how well Watt (Leon the Chameleon) knows her helicopter-parented audience that she's able to turn the phrase 'antibacterial soap' into a bona fide punchline. Fearing attack by Martians, sharks, poison ivy, killer bees, tarantulas and/or germs, Scaredy Squirrel decides 'he'd rather stay in his safe and familiar tree than risk venturing out into the unknown.' But just in case something goes awry, this most anxious rodent also has an extensive emergency kit that includes sardines (to distract the sharks), the aforementioned antibacterial soap and a parachute. Then one day, Scaredy's unvarying and admittedly boring routine is thrown for a loop (it's the emergency kit's fault), and he discovers he's a flying squirrel — an epiphany so momentous that it garners the book's only gatefold spread. Will Scaredy's life be changed forever now that new vistas have opened up to him? Well, sort of. Watt largely dispenses with conventional visual storytelling; instead, she tells the hero's story through a series of boldly graphic and endearingly goofy charts and diagrams (one outlines the anxious rodent's 'top secret,' four-option plan for exiting the tree in case of emergency). Funny in their own right, the pages also spoof all the sincerely inane worksheets that are the staple of elementary school homework. Youngsters will go nuts over this one. Ages 4-8." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Review:

The nice allusion of jumping on faith and learning that you have wings will be over kids' heads, but they will love Squirrel's sense of adventure, curiosity, and excitement upon being freed from his fears." Children's Literature

Review:

"Thick-lined cartoons with bold patches of color, quirky charts and graphs, and clever asides provide humor that will appeal to children." School Library Journal

Synopsis:

As Old Man Fookwire's birds prepare to migrate south for the winter, the squirrels decide to follow. The birds and squirrels' sunny, beachyand#160;destination is a paradise, so warm and beautiful that it might even entice the grumpiest old man in existence to pay a visit as well.

Synopsis:

Old Man Fookwire's one pleasure in life is painting the birds in his backyard. When fall arrives andand#160;the birds fly south, Fookwire isand#160;desolate. The squirrels are curious: Where are the birds going, and whatand#160;do they do once they get there?and#160;With their usual ingenuity and engineering skills, the squirrels devise a way toand#160;follow the birds to their destination, a tropical paradise.A wonderful time is had by alland#8212;all but grumpy Old Man Fookwire, alone at home. But the squirrels have a solution for that, too. Readers will revel in this third off-the-wall comedy featuring Old Man Fookwire, a lot of birds, andand#160;those darn squirrels.

But as Scaredy Squirrel leaps into the unknown, he discovers something really uplifting ?

Oh My goodness. Our school's fall book fair opened today and this book was in there. I had never heard of this title, so I picked it up and read it. I LOVED IT so much that I bought one for my classroom, as well as, my son's classroom. The pictures are so cute and the lessons that teachers can pull from this book is amazing!! I will be looking for more of Scaredy Squirrel in the future!!
AWESOME!!!AWESOME!!!AWESOME!!
