Greedy squirrels Cyril and Bruce both have their sights on a very special prize: the last pinecone of the season. Uh-oh! The race is on! A laugh-out-loud tale about friendship and sharing by the bestselling duo behind The Lion Inside and The Koala Who Could, Rachel Bright and Jim Field!
Two squirrels (one more prepared for winter than the other!) both race to capture the last pinecone (and seeds!) of the season, but it turns out that in their haste to out-do each other, they both lose the pinecone and both almost lose some limbs to boot. The illustrations are bright and convey a lot of motion and emotion, and when the squirrels discover that it might be better to share (both their food and some laughs with a friend) than have what they want to themselves you’ll be smiling as big as the squirrels.
