Full Text Reviews:
Booklist - 02/15/2009 Fretful, neurotic Scaredy, star of Scaredy Squirrel (2006) and Scaredy Squirrel at the Beach (2008), once again confronts his fears. This time, Scaredy is too terrified to sleep, and on lively pages formatted as charts and diagrams, he presents potential night visitors (unicorns, polka-dotted monsters) and how he will guard against them (molasses, banana peels). Some vocabulary words will be a stretch for a young audience (hallucinations, drowsiness), but kids will be amused by the lively, busy compositions packed with silly details, and those who share Scaredy’s insomniac tendencies will enjoy the reassuring outcome. - Copyright 2009 Booklist.
School Library Journal - 08/01/2009 K-Gr 2— Children will be delighted as Scaredy Squirrel attempts to face his fear of falling asleep because of bad dreams, and they'll laugh at his absurd lists and action plans. Although the ending is predictable, youngsters will sigh with relief as he finally nods off. The layout includes multiple images as he makes lists and carries out his plans to stay awake all night. The cartoon illustrations, rendered digitally in Photoshop, capture the action and are filled with humorous details. This could be a useful title for guiding children in developing lists and action plans. It would be interesting to see how they would ward off bad dreams.—Margaret R.
