Cyril The Squirrel - Caroline Hall & Alec Wills

As dusk fell, Squirrel settled down for the night, happy that his secret store would be safe until winter.

Cyril the Squirrel is busy making ready for the long hard winter ahead, only to find that his treasure store has been raided. He calls on his friends, Rabbit, Hedgehog, Deer and Peacock to help but the thief is very cunning.

Peacock finally hits on a clever plan to outsmart the rascal so that Squirrel can at last sleep happy, knowing that his winter store is safe.

Following up to the hugely successful Pimpernel The Peakcock childrens' book, Caroline Hall has now published, Cyril The Squirrel where children, eveywhere, can follow his adventures.

Caroline Hall lives in Poole, Dorset. She likes to sail around the harbour, and in particular to Brownsea Isand, which is where the inspiration for CYRIL THE SQUIRREL and its sequel PIMPERNEL THE PEACOCK originated.

Alec Wills is married, with two stepchildren and three grand children. He likes to paint local scenes of Poole in water colour, which he exhibits in local galleries. He also draws cartoons and illustrations for national and local magazines.
