About the Book
In this next nutty installment in the Scaredy Squirrel series, Scaredy needs a vacation from his tree-bound routine. Can his homemade beach take the place of the real thing? Illustrations.
From the Publisher
We know by now that Scaredy Squirrel only feels safe when he's at home in his nut tree, with his defenses, his emergency kit and his back?up plans at the ready. So even though the sun is shining and it's time for a vacation, Scaredy does not want to go to the beach -- that vast, frightening place where a squirrel could get stranded. (Not to mention other hazards such as sea monsters, falling coconuts, seagulls, pirates and lobsters.) Instead, Scaredy builds his own safe beach getaway under his nut tree, complete with germ-free inflatable pool, artificial beach scenery, a flashlight and a plastic flamingo. Still, the lure of the genuine beach is strong -- even a dedicated homebody such as Scaredy can't resist it forever. Can his back?up plans save him from its perils? Will his No.65 sunscreen protect his delicate complexion?
