Scaredy Squirrel has a Birthday Party

Printer friendly         Send to a friend

New Document No rodent does paranoia and compulsion better than Scaredy Squirrel, ushered back by creator Mélanie Watt in Scaredy Squirrel Has a Birthday Party to celebrate his birthday – in as quiet and orderly a fashion as possible. Party décor, location, cake recipe: all are meticulously planned, no matter that the birthday boy is the only invited guest. But then Buddy the dog mails Scaredy a card, and as “a kindly gesture deserves a kindly response,” Scaredy widens his guest list just a little more... When a gang of neighbourhood mutts shows up for the party, Scaredy’s hyperscheduling and numerous back-up plans go out the window. Will Scaredy emerge from his self- induced coma in time to enjoy the day? Watt’s latest, rendered in her characteristic brightly coloured style, is sheer fun.
