Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the fifth book, Scaredy Squirrel plans his own birthday and surprise ... things get very crowded. Scaredy Squirrel is planning his own birthday party for one ? but despite his detailed plans, things get out of control when the party animals arrive. He's back Scaredy Squirrel, the loveable worrywart, returns for another nutty adventure. Scaredy never plans big birthday parties. He'd rather celebrate alone quietly in the safety of his nut tree and avoid those pesky party animals (ants, clownfish, ponies and Bigfoot). When all his excessive plans are thrown up in the air like confetti, will Scaredy play dead and cancel? Or will he face the music?

Review:

"It shouldn't surprise readers that Scaredy Squirrel doesn't like, well, surprises. And, as his fifth picture book demonstrates, that includes birthday party surprises, even when it's his birthday. Scaredy is all too aware of the pitfalls that can spoil such an occasion: confetti, Bigfoot, clownfish, ants, ponies, and porcupines. His solution? Scaredy Squirrel, party of one, please. But Scaredy's plan to not invite any guests gets tossed aside when he receives a birthday card from Buddy the dog; he invites Buddy, a 'risky move!' that upends the rest of Scaredy's porcupine- and pony-defying preparations when Buddy shows up with several canine friends. After freaking out ('He chases... He screams... He ducks... He freezes and... PLAYS DEAD'), Scaredy realizes (as usual) that all his worrying is for naught. Might the panphobic squirrel finally be cured? Don't bet on it, but kids should have as much fun as ever following along as Watt shares Scaredy's idea of party small talk ('So, do you come here often?') and birthday dos and don'ts. Hint: the only 'do' is 'sit quietly.' Ages 3 — 8. (Feb.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)
