What's Scaredy Book About

Publisher Summary

Book lives at the library and desperately wants to go outside, but is intimidated by all the things that might happen ‘out there’. A page might get torn. Book’s cover might get dirty. Book might never be returned to the library! Meanwhile, Emma loves visiting the library and delights in the many adventures to be had in the stories she finds there. When Emma meets Book, they find they are just what each other needs. Together, Book and Emma move out of their comfort zone to try new things, meet new people, and enjoy a few quiet adventures - climbing trees, laughing in the rain, and even cheering along at a soccer match. Along the way, they discover that ‘out there’ needn’t be scary if you just take it one step at a time. Children and parents alike will enjoy this story about being brave, taking risks, and living to tell the tale!

Who Illustrated Scaredy Book

Cara King

As well as being an illustrator, I also work in a marketing team as a graphic designer on most work days. I illustrated my first book ""Mummy and Mumma get Married"" in 2016 after being part of a facebook group called the 52 Week illustration challenge. This group honed my scribbles into something less scribbly and I made a few creative friends along the way. I love to draw and use watercolours, and drink tea. Sometimes all at once. A little mess is a good thing. I live with my husband and 2 sons in Melbourne's west and share our space with a few chickens, a poodle and a yabbie.
