Cyril and Pat

The Borneo Post - Good English - - Short Story Section - By Emily Gravett

Cyril is lonely. There are no other squir­rels in the park – at least, that is what he thinks, un­til he meets Pat. To­gether they have fun. But Pat is not a squir­rel. Does this mat­ter if he is a good friend?

A lively rhyming text with a very catchy re­frain de­signed to catch the lis­ten­ers out as they joy­fully join in, is the per­fect ac­com­pa­ni­ment to Gravett’s witty illustrations. Mak­ing full use of each spread, her en­er­getic lines con­vey hu­mour and ac­tion to en­gage the young reader as Cyril and Pat leap, bound and bounce round the park. Her colour palette matches the mood; the park a lush green space framed by grey build­ings.
