Scaredy Squirrel at Night
by Mélanie Watt
Scaredy never sleeps—sleep might mean bad dreams about dragons, ghosts, vampire bats and polka-dot monsters. Our wide-eyed hero has a plan: stay awake all night, every night. Between counting stars, playing cymbals and making scrapbooks, he does a good job of avoiding dreamland.
With exhaustion taking its toll, Scaredy comes face-to-face with an alarming horoscope prediction: All his dreams are about to come true!
He must prepare for the worst and his Bad Dream Action Plan includes a fire extinguisher to snuff out dragons and a fan to blast away ghosts. But when disaster strikes, will Scaredy survive this ordeal? Will he thank his lucky stars? Will he find sweet dreams?
Scaredy Squirrel at Night tackles a fear everyone—and especially the young—can relate to. It's a bedtime story to make light of kids' fear of the dark and a fable for our sleep-deprived society.
