Written by Rachel Bright

Illustrated by Jim Field

The Squirrels Who Squabbled Synopsis

Two greedy squirrels learn to share in the third hilarious rhyming adventure from the bestselling creators of THE LION INSIDE. Greedy squirrels Cyril and Bruce both have their sights on a very special prize: THE VERY LAST NUT OF THE SEASON! As the nut bounces crazily though the forest, the squirrels race after it, between the trees, over boulders, down the river and - ARGH! - right to the edge of a waterfall! Working together might be the only way to save themselves now ... A laugh-out-loud tale about friendship and sharing from the bestselling creators of THE LION INSIDE and THE KOALA WHO COULD. Perfect for competitive friends and sibling rivals! Praise for THE LION INSIDE: 'A heartfelt message, delightfully conveyed' Parents in Touch 'A delight to read over and over again' WRD 'Captivating' Books for Keeps 'Will easily win over readers' The Book List 'Field is on top form, offering so many imaginative framings and irreverent characterizations that readers will feel carried along by his visual and comedic generosity.' Publishers Weekly 'Brilliant ... had me in hoots of laughter' The Bookbag

So much care and attention has gone into this book, and it really pays off. It's delightful to read again and again... * The Bookbag * Told in catching rhyming text that reads aloud superbly, and illustrated in great detail by Jim Field, showing off the beauties of the forest, this is a charming story.about sharing and friendship. * Parents in Touch * A rhyming romp of a read complete with gorgeous illustrations that pre-schoolers will adore.
