Published by Happy Cat Books
He's lean, he's keen, he's absolutely petrified of everything outside the tree where he lives. That's Scaredy Squirrel. The book plays out like a survival manual for would-be squirrels and warns of the dangers outside the safe haven of an acorn tree.
Naturally Scaredy Squirrel soon finds out that even the best contingency plans of mice and men (and squirrels) come apart like wet tissue paper when an ordinary day turns into an extraordinarily dangerous one.
Great clean neat artwork and superb scurrying paranoid-squirrel text.
