Description

A brave little squirrel transforms her fears into a reassuring, heroic adventure.

“What if . . . what if . . . a tiger ate them?”
Aunt Lily’s eyes opened wide.
“Eaten by a tiger? What an awful thought!”
“But I would rescue them,” said Rosie.
“I would chase that tiger until he let them free.”

Rosie is worried. Why aren’t her parents home yet? The reassuring, heroic text and fun-filled illustrations address one of children’s biggest fears while celebrating one little squirrel’s bravery.
