School Library Journal - 05/01/2011 K-Gr 2—Scaredy Squirrel's birthday is rapidly approaching. He plans to celebrate as he always has—safe and sound in his oak tree, where no one can surprise him. But an unexpected birthday card leads him to expand the party. When some "party animals" appear, he finds that it is worth letting go of your worries when you're surrounded by friends. This book is very detailed—the protagonist keeps copious lists of things he is scared of, party plans, and safety precautions to protect him from any surprises or loud noises. All of these plans are layered across the pages, with grids of illustrations or checklists trailing down the pages. This is definitely a book for one-on-one sharing or individual reading sessions. The illustrations are exactly what Watt is known for—round-faced animals, goofy expressions, and lots and lots of worry. Scaredy Squirrel will be enjoyed by children who have gone to a birthday party or two and can appreciate the slapstick humor. They might also sense a bit of the isolation that the squirrel's anxiety has created in the past.—Susan E.
