Summary
Scaredy Squirrel is not too comfortable with the idea of camping... unless it's on his couch! There will be no mosquitoes, skunks or zippers to worry about when he watches a show about the joys of camping on his brand-new TV. But first Scaredy must find an electrical outlet, and that means going into the woods! Will the nutty worrywart's plans prepare him for the great outdoors, or will his adventure end up as a scary story told around the campfire?
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The need to plug in a new TV forces the squirrel with OCD tendencies into yet another outing. First, though, supplies must be gathered from rubber boots and bug netting to a very long extension cord. And because planning is everything! every conceivable hazard is charted ( Keep a nose out for skunks. If sprayed, overreact! ), a time line and a checklist of weather conditions compiled, and the adjacent campground carefully mapped. Alas, still one can't think of everything. A sudden encounter with a penguin results in a wild scramble that ultimately leads the redoubtable rodent to a new appreciation for the pleasures of camping under the stars. Scaredy Squirrel's meticulous preparations are, once again, captured in squared off, neatly arranged, carefully labeled cartoon illustrations, and his experiences may blaze a trail for readers with a similar aversion to venturing outdoors.--Peters, John Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Why go camping when you can watch it-The Joy of Camping, that is-on television? That's the plan for Scaredy Squirrel, who recognizes that such dangers as penguins, quicksand, mosquitoes, and zippers make camping excursions way too scary. But finding a power outlet for his television requires leaving his tree house and, therefore, some careful planning. Scaredy charts out the survival supplies required for his journey across the campground (they include a "really long extension cord," popsicles, and a dictionary) and maps the path he will take, with the electrical cord demarcating his trail from "the comfort zone" to the electrical outlet. When on his quest, a fearsome penguin encounter (who'd have guessed Scaredy was right about that one?) sends him reeling off course, but Scaredy eventually discovers that the wilderness is "meant to be enjoyed up close!" As in the previous books, the small format and tidy, humorously labeled cartoons make Scaredy's world feel especially immediate and accessible. The loveably neurotic (yet highly resourceful) rodent should continue to help anxious readers see their own fears in a different light. Ages 4-8. (Apr.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
