The time is now for this anxious little guy: Scaredy Squirrel is back with a brand-new graphic novel series! He’s funnier (and scared-ier) than ever.

     Scaredy is happy to stay in his nut tree. Why would he ever leave? The outside is filled with dangers. Like aliens! And dust! And a certain fluffy bunny who likes to pop up! But things don’t always go as planned, even for a super-prepared squirrel. When he has to venture out of his tree and onto the ground, Scaredy panics and plays dead . . . but maybe the fluffy bunny’s not so scary after all? In a nutshell, Scaredy might just make a new friend, if he is brave enough. . . .

Perfect for fans of NARWHAL AND JELLY!

In the first book in this new young graphic novel series, Jim Panzee, star of the #1 New York Times bestseller Grumpy Monkey, searches for the perfect orange stress ball.

It’s Wednesday! Which means it’s time for Jim Panzee’s weekly Wednesday walk. Jim’s favorite part: the blissful silence, when he can hear all the jungle sounds. Until . . . his best buddy, Norman—and every other animal in the jungle—decides to join him.

Jim grabs his stress orange to calm his nerves . . . but when he squeezes a bit too hard, the stress orange goes squish. So Jim and his not-so-helpful friends must cross the jungle to get another stress orange before it is too late! 

Perfect for fans of the original GRUMPY MONKEY picture books!
