Title: Scaredy Squirrel Prepares for Halloween
Author and Illustrator: Melanie Watt
Our loveable, neurotic little worrywart, Scaredy Squirrel is back with another winning book for your reading pleasure. It is a Safety Guide to Halloween. It is an event planner that will make your Halloween the best and least surprising ever. Following his carefully, thought - out safety tips, you will experience a safe and harmless night of trick-or-treating and party celebration.
The author has divided the book into short chapters (8 in all) and has covered everything from decorating your home, choosing your costumes and even eating the type of candy you might receive on that frightful night. Some of the over-the-top advice he dispenses is: always carve a pumpkin with a friendly look on its face, if you want a great costume - start shopping for one in early June, and of course the best one for me was ..... chocolate Halloween candy is very good but it does melt and attract bunnies. Scaredy Squirrel also suggests that you turn on your blender to scare off the ghosts and goblins, avoid any untamed lawns you may encounter and turn on your washing machine for the sound effects. The good news about the washing machine is that you can do a load of laundry at the same time as you are using it for scare tactics for things that go bump in the night.
Scaredy Squirrel is a a favourite story character with OCD tendencies that everyone will surely love. Kids of all ages will get a laugh from his overcompensations that come to naught. He documents in vivid detail how to have a safe and accident-free Halloween night. Perfect read aloud that will generate lots of smiles and laughter. The illustrations are hilarious making Scaredy even more endearing to the reader. Check out: www. scraredysquirrel.com for a more info on both book and author.
