is afraid of something. For me itís snakes and spiders. For my mom itís
driving. For you it could be mean dogs or lightning storms. Being afraid
is perfectly normal. It is only bad when your fear keeps you from enjoying
life like it did for poor Twitchly Fidget. Twitchly is a lemur that is
afraid of everything. He wonít shampoo his hair because he is afraid that
it wonít rinse out and birds will be attracted to his head. He wonít eat
cereal because he is afraid that the crunchy noises might make him jump
and hit his head. He wonít wear sneakers because heís afraid that he may
put them on the wrong feet. He wonít celebrate the holidays with his fellow
lemurs because heís afraid that something might happen. So poor Twitchly
sits alone in his dreary, windowless, door less hut and waits for the worst
to happen. Until one day his Aunt Bridget Fidget drops by and changes everything.
To find out how Aunt Bridget turns everything around and saves Twitchly
from his fears, read Something Might Happen by Helen Lester. (Zina
