Scaredy Squirrel Makes a Friend

Scaredy Squirrel Makes a Friend

Written and Illustrated by Melanie Watt

Amazon Link: £5.24

Published by Catnip / Happy Cat Books

Scaredy Squirrel offers another self-help guide for nervous types - this time he deals with the trials and tribulations of making a new friend. 

Spotting a goldfish as a potential new pal, Scaredy makes sure and doubly sure that everything is in place before executing "Operation: Make a friend". 

Melanie Watt is ace. Great graphical drawing style, hilarious writing style and she's Canadian so I'm automatically duty-bound to think she's awesome. Scaredy Squirrel is a great character too so if your kids enjoyed Scaredy Squirrel's first forays from his ancient oak tree home, enjoy another chapter where things don't quite run according to Scaredy's meticulously constructed plans. 

Charlotte's best bit: "Licky dog!"

Daddy's favourite bit: Any book that features a cameo appearance from Godzilla automatically gets 5 out of 5!

Rating: Yep, 5 out of 5
