But just when every detail is under control, Scaredy's Action Plan takes a surprising --- and ?toothy? --- turn. Will he survive this ordeal? Will he find his kindred spirit? Will he discover the true meaning of friendship? Read Scaredy's nutty story to find out ...

One Potato Review

For anyone worried about a letdown after the original Scaredy Squirrel - don’t. Watt’s formula may be the same - charts and maps and footnotes and emergency protocols - but this is surprisingly still light on its feet; you never get the feeling she’s coasting on the details. Here those include some pretty hysterical bugaboos: beavers, piranhas, Godzilla and walruses (“Beware… they’re fast on their flippers!”), not to mention a toothy, drooly, germy dog who is nevertheless estimated to be 83% safe, and significantly shares Scaredy Squirrel’s enthusiasm for playing dead.
