Publication Date: February 1, 2011
Scaredy Squirrel is planning his own birthday party for one - but despite his detailed plans, things get out of control when the party animals arrive.
He's back! Scaredy Squirrel, the loveable worrywart, returns for another nutty adventure. Scaredy never plans big birthday parties. He'd rather celebrate alone quietly in the safety of his nut tree and avoid those pesky party animals (ants, clownfish, ponies and Bigfoot). When all his excessive plans are thrown up in the air like confetti, will Scaredy play dead and cancel? Or will he face the music?

Praise For Scaredy Squirrel Has a Birthday Party…
Watt's wry digital illustrations make the most of the perceived mayhem, using a host of graphic conventions to tell her story. There's no question it's a formula by now, but it's still a winning one. Many happy returns, Scaredy.—Kirkus Reviews
Watt's latest, rendered in her characteristic brightly coloured style, is sheer fun.—Montreal Review of Books
