Synopsis

Cyril and Pat is a very funny, rhyming romp through the park from the CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal-winning Emily Gravett, author of Tidy and Meerkat Mail.

"Enormous fun to read aloud." – Guardian

Cyril is the only squirrel in Lake Park, and he's very lonely. Until one day he meets Pat – Pat the big, grey . . . other squirrel. Cyril and Pat have lots of adventures and fun together and Cyril is so pleased he's made a friend. But everyone says that Cyril and Pat simply cannot be friends, and they soon reveal why: Pat, as the reader has known all along, is actually a RAT!

But Cyril's life turns out to be a lot duller and quite a bit scarier without Pat by his side, and in the end the two friends learn that some things are more important than being the same, or listening to others.

This comic, summery picturebook invitingly depicts an urban park and is the rhyming story of a friendship between Cyril, a squirrel, and Pat, a… something else. It shows how difference doesn’t matter and will make readers feel one step ahead.

Sunday Times

Have your hearts melted by the touching duo and learn that friendship is truly worth fighting for in this funny yet tender story.

Ni4Kids

Filled with the anarchic energy of these defiant buddies cutting capers, it’s enormous fun to read aloud, and a paean to loyal friendship in the teeth of opposition
