HERE’S THE STORY IN A NUTSHELL: I NEVER leave my nut tree. It’s way too dangerous out there. I could encounter germs, poison ivy or sharks. If danger comes along, I’m prepared. I have antibacterial soap, Band-Aids and a parachute. But things really get shaken up later in the book when I’m forced out of my tree by a vicious intruder! Will I survive this ordeal? Will I undergo a life-changing experience? Will I discover my true inner self? READ MY NUTTY ADVENTURE TO FIND OUT . . . *Caution: This story is not suitable for green Martians.

This animated ebook features over twenty interactive elements as well as read-along narration, music, and sound effects. “As Scaredy Squirrel would tell you: if you take a flying leap into the unknown once in a while, you may learn something new about yourself.” —The Horn Book Magazine “A masterful balance of charm, comedy and serious realism.” —Toronto Star “Youngsters will go nuts over this one.” —Publishers Weekly Mélanie Watt never leaves her home near Montreal, Quebec. She would rather concentrate on creating books for kids. Mélanie Watt’s daily routine consists of waking up, eating, writing, drawing, erasing, drawing, eating and going to sleep. Mélanie’s books include:

Tried to be positive

Story really wasn't cute. I found it hard to manipulate the interactive bits.

Entire family loved the books

We have the hardback versions of all the Scaredy Squirrel books, my 2nd grader brought them home from the school library. If you've got a 1st-3rd grader, you can't go wrong with Scaredy. We can't wait until her next book!
