Something Might Happen

written by Helen Lester, illustrated by Lynn Munsinger

Twitchly Fidget the lemur worries about almost everything until his Aunt Bridget Fidget shows him another way to live.

Twitchly Fidget is afraid of everything. He refuses to wash his fur because the shampoo bubbles might not rinse out. He's afraid to eat his cereal because the crunchy noises might startle him. Then bossy Aunt Bridget arrives, and when she scrubs Twitchly's fur and shoves a big spoonful of cereal in his mouth, nothing bad happens. Reassured and energized, he proceeds to try all the things that he used to dread.

Ink-and-watercolor pictures create an irresistible character in the fraidy-cat lemur, saucer-eyed with fear at first, then beaming with pride by the story's end.
