How to have the best Halloween ever -- even if you're afraid of everything!

Jul 09, 2016

Squirrels are lovely, sometimes very friendly little creatures, little acrobats; some of them run up to me for a nut and even take it from my hand. I absolutely love to see them around. Now, I have a Halloween question for you - should squirrels be killed off, because, as it was said a second time in the News already, they are too numerous by now in England? Well, recently an English politician said, and it was in the Media, that England has 60 Million inhabitants, but the Land can sustain 15 Million only. Connect the dots. Should squirrels be culled off? What is your take on this? For your information, today there are 14 times as many people on Earth than in 1600AD. Watch the "Soylent Green" movie (here in VPL) and think. Happy Halloween!

Scaredy Squirrel, the neurotic rodent of Canadian picture book fame, returns in this “nutty” safety guide for Halloween.

The spookiest day of the year is fast approaching and Scaredy, who always fears danger and unpredictability, is preparing for the ghoulish festivities. As usual, there’s much to consider and think through. (Can a squirrel ever be too prepared?)

How should he carve a pumpkin safely so that it looks friendly, not frightening? How can his home in the nut tree be decorated for Halloween so that it looks inviting, not scary? What Halloween costume can Scaredy choose that’s safe to wear - and not too spooky? Should he wear a mask or use makeup on his face?

What is the safest trick-or-treating route for Scaredy, and what will he do if he meets Frankenstein, a mummy, a spider, or a giant chicken en route?

If he is given some hard candy (always delicious but it could break a tooth), should he eat it?

With so much to consider, it’s almost overwhelming for poor Scaredy. (But of course, he can always resort to his favourite ploy, playing dead!)

Readers will enjoy the absolutely wacky humour that accompanies Scaredy’s tips for safe and happy Halloween trick-or-treating.

Not nearly as good as the other "Scaredy Squirrel" books. It was just ok.
