Who's afraid of the dark?
Not Squish!

Squish Rabbit is a very small rabbit, and he's afraid of lots of things. Like storms. And chickens (you would be too, if you were small!). And the dark. Especially the dark. But when he goes to meet his good friend Twitch the squirrel one evening, he can't find her. She's missing! And it's getting dark! Squish knows he must be brave to find her, but it takes all of his courage . . . to discover that the dark can be magical, especially when filled with stars.

With playful text and adorable illustrations, Brave Squish Rabbit will encourage young readers to face their fears.

Battersby incorporates surprising multimedia accents throughout (gold foil lightning bolts, chickens constructed entirely out of yellow feathers, textured papers, patterned fabrics) that give children the chance to hunt for the unexpected.

City Book Review

Squish is a little rabbit, and “being little [leads] to big fears.” Squish is afraid of chickens and storms, but his biggest fear is of the dark.
