Mélanie Watt, who resides near Montreal, Canada, is the author and illustrator of three children's picture book series and a number of individual picture book releases. Many of her works rely heavily on gags that either [[PaintingTheMedium paint]] or [[BreakingTheFourthWall break]] the fourth wall and she is also known for her quirky, lively and unusual characters, which all are [[FurriesAreEasierToDraw Furries]] that fall along various points on the SlidingScaleOfAnthropomorphism.

* The ''Scaredy Squirrel'' series about a squirrel with SuperOCD - ''Scaredy Squirrel'', ''Scaredy Squirrel Makes a Friend'', ''Scaredy Squirrel at the Beach'', ''Scaredy Squirrel at Night'' and ''Scaredy Squirrel Has a Birthday Party'' (February 2011) This series has been made into an AnimatedAdaptation (see [[{{WesternAnimation/ScaredySquirrel}} its page]]) by Creator/{{Nelvana}}.
