A rhyming romp of a read complete with gorgeous illustrations that pre-schoolers will adore. Rachel Bright improves with each book. This is reminiscent of Julia Donaldson. -- Natasha Harding * The Sun * Told in catching rhyming text that reads aloud superbly, and illustrated in great detail by Jim Field, showing off the beauties of the forest, this is a charming story.about sharing and friendship. * Parents in Touch * Bright colours (with a perfect, autumnal palette here) and characters full of life bring a joyful feel to every page. So much care and attention has gone into this book, and it really pays off. It's delightful to read again and again... * The Bookbag * The series of books by Rachel Bright and Jim Field are fantastic for their morals and messages, and this one doesn't disappoint. [...] Highly recommended. * Reading Zone - Teacher Review * The Squirrels Who Squabbled offers a humorous look at the perils of adopting an "I want" mentality, which will ring true in many households. * Evening Echo (Cork) * A truly delightful tale about friendship, sharing and the importance of laughter in our lives. * The School Librarian *
