A beautifully illustrated tale about how differences shouldn’t stop you making friends. Cyril is a very lonely squirrel, until he meets Pat, the big, grey . . . other squirrel. Together he and Pat have plenty of fun and adventures, but everyone is adamant that Cyril and Pat can’t be friends, because Pat is actually a rat!
But Cyril’s life is duller and scarier without Pat around, and the two of them learn that friendship is more important than being the same, or listening to others.
