KIRKUS REVIEW

There certainly are a lot of scary things that might happen, but most people aren’t afraid of their shampoo or their sneakers. Twitchly Fidget, a young lemur, is scared of both and much more. When his friends come to ask him to a parade, he declines for fear of getting bopped by a drumstick or sucked into a trombone. When his friends return to ask him to a marshmallow roast, he declines again for fear of getting stuck to everyone with melty marshmallows. His friends stop coming around, but Aunt Bridget Fidget swoops down to set things aright. With her own brand of tough love, Aunt Bridget shows Twitchly that just because something might happen doesn’t mean it will. Lester and Munsinger have once more delivered a silly yet instructional tale sure to please generations of listeners. (Picture book. 4-8)
