Scaredy is about a koala that discovers he has a fear of heights, which is unfortunate because koalas live in tall gum trees.
This creates quite a problem for Scaredy. He uses all of his courage and determination, but can’t seem to overcome his fears.
His friends think he’s playing funny games with them. They laugh along with him, unaware of his anguish. Scaredy thinks his friends are laughing at him, not with him, and this just gets too much for Scaredy to bear.
He finally declares his problem to his friends, and what happens after that is a wonderful example of true friendship.
Throughout this story, Scaredy discovers the value of trust and courage, and the importance of true friendships.
