About Scaredy Cat…Client review
‘As soon as you open this colourful book, the scene is set for loads of adventure and fun as a little girl asks the question, ‘Have you Seen my Scaredy Cat?’ Every spread is a visual feast and kids will love searching for Scaredy Cat. The rhyme is terrific to read aloud. The little girl is a wonderful friend to her beloved pet. And the ending is so satisfying and heartfelt that the story begs to be read over and over. A wonderful addition to any home or classroom.’ – Kaye Baillie
About Heather Gallagher
Heather Gallagher is a children’s author and freelance journalist. Her writing has been published in The Age, Victorian Writer and The Big Issue. Her stories for children have appeared in black dog books Short & Scary anthology and Explore and Challenge magazines.
Heather is obsessed with quirky animal stories. Her first book Ferret on the Loose was inspired by a girl and her ferret, who Heather interviewed while working as a freelance journalist for The Sunday Age.
In 2014, she released her first picture book Happy Pants – Why is mummy so sad? This is NOT a story about ferret racing. Rather, it is a heartfelt story about a boy grappling with his Mum’s post-natal depression.
Heather was inspired to write Scaredy Cat by her dog Pip’s anxiety. Pip’s biggest fear is other dogs but he’s also terrified of delivery men, saucepans and the vacuum cleaner.
