Scaredy Squirrel - by Melanie Watt

What do you think of squirrels?  My experience is that even though they're super cute, they still like to throw acorns at my head and yell at me whenever I come near their tree.  This book is about one little squirrel who is so nervous about everything that he NEVER leaves his tree.  There's plenty of food there, and safety.  He's afraid of just about everything, from killer bees and germs to green martians.  Only when he accidentally falls from the tree one day does our hero realize that the world isn't quite so scary after all.
This short picture book is very cute, written and illustrated by the same person in a very funny way.  There are more in the series, so we haven't seen the end of Scaredy Squirrel!
