Amelia Frances Howard-Gibbon Illustrator's Award

Melanie Watt :Scaredy Squirrel : Kids Can Press

Scaredy Squirrel introduces us to a sympathetic little character who has so many fears that they prevent him from leaving the security of his home in a nut tree. Melanie Watt's visual humour is always sympathetic while being funny as she explores the little squirrel's dilemma. Scaredy's final courageous leap beyond his tree is accompanied by a flap that sends him from the confines of the book and his fear into the unknown.
