Melanie Watt's "Scaredy Squirrel"

Mélanie Watt writes and illustrates the very popular children's book series about a character named Scaredy Squirrel. He's also become a TV series.

This holiday season, Mélanie Watt has a new book out called Scaredy Squirrel Prepares for Christmas. Mélanie spoke with Sonali Karnick about Scaredy, as well as about Mélanie's more confident creation, Chester the cat.
