Sam, the Most Scaredy-cat Kid in the Whole World

By Mo Willems
Illustrated by Mo Willems

A terrifically terrifying tale!

"There is no such thing as a bad Mo Willems book" The Times From Mo Willems, the multi award-winning, New York Times bestselling creator of the Pigeon series and the Knuffle Bunny trilogy, comes a companion title to Leonardo, the Terrible Monster. One day, Sam, the most scaredy-cat kid in the whole world, makes a terrifying discovery. It's not Frankenthaler the monster. It's her friend – Kerry! Kerry, the second most scaredy-cat kid in the whole world, also makes a terrifying discovery. It's not Leonardo the monster. It's his friend – Sam! "AAAAH!" yells Sam. "EEEEK!" yells Kerry. Something has to be done. Something BIG. But what?

  • A laugh-out-loud story of combating fear with friendship, and celebrating our similarities over our differences.
  • Mo Willems has won numerous awards and accolades: the Caldecott Honor three times, the Theodor Seuss Geisel Medal twice (as well as five honors), and six Emmy awards for his work on Sesame Street, too!
  • The same striking, large format as Leonardo, which cleverly combines distinctive cartoon-style artwork, theatrical typeface, pastel palette and ingenious use of space.
