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. Grades 1-3. --John Peters
