Cyril's Woodland Quest by Eugene McCabe, Fujie YamauchiThis is a re-issue of an O'Brien classic Cyril the Squirrel . Cyril, a lonely orphaned red squirrel, sets off from his homeland to find others of his own kind. He meets danger and difficulty and has many exciting adventures. He also has to face the question of whether he will befriend his 'cousins' the grey squirrels, whom he says he hates.
'Reminds me of that famous book Watership Down, except that the dialogue in Eugene McCabe's book is more likeable ... Lots of adventure and drama'
'Apart from getting his readers deeply interested in the fascinating antics of Cyril, the little red squirrel, Eugene McCabe commands attention for his wonderful description of countryside, lakes and woods'
'In this beautifully written fable Cyril has to figure out for himself who his real people are.'
'A tale of racism and prejudice in the guise of a nature adventure ... A crisply told yarn that yields a lesson on how society can pull together when the occasion arises.'
'A charming tale'
