Scaredy Squirrel is back! With glow-in-the-dark teeth! And this time he is afraid to go to sleep because he may have bad dreams. He certainly has an eclectic lot of things he’s afraid of: dragons, fairies, ghosts, unicorns, vampire bats, and polka-dot monsters. In order to avoid these horrors, he decides to stay awake all night, every night, and his methods for staying awake are certainly unusual. He will count stars and play the cymbals, and then he will make scrapbooks! Sleepless nights bring their own problems, of course, and when he reads his horoscope and finds that at midnight ‘all his dreams will come true’, he must take action. Will Scaredy Squirrel put off the bad dreams? Will he ever sleep again? It is the whacky illustrations that really make this book. Mostly divided up into squares and circles, the pictures with their flat, plain, simple colours are clearly defined and very funny. Scaredy Squirrel is clever, sophisticated and highly original.
