Cyril and Pat

(2) PS Pat looks like squirrel Cyril, but Pat's skinny pink tail (and rhymes-with name) reveals he's a less-beloved park rodent. Still, lonely Cyril sees "his new best friend" in Pat. The two do everything together--and annoy the other animals, who try to tell Cyril that his friend is a rat. Punchy and entertaining, with rhyming text and bright art, this boisterous but thoughtful look at friendship makes an enjoyable read-aloud.
