Cyril and Pat
Another beautifully crafted picture book, which is simple enough for toddlers, yet enjoyable for adults too, from Emily Gravett. Told with great humour and just the right amount of rhyme, Cyril and Pat, is a story of an unlikely friendship between Squirrel and Rat (named respectively Cyril and Pat). Set in a Metropolitan London park, Gravett's book is filled to the brim with quirky characters, whitty and beautiful illustrations. It's a joy! Best for Ages 1-4.
