This charming little book is as delicious as a piece of cake - which just happens to be Squirrel's favourite food!

Young readers are invited to Squirrel's birthday party - and into a magical world of the imagination. Brief, evocative, thought-provoking, and unlike anything else ever written, Toon Tellegen's extraordinary tales are rich in unforgettable, even surrealistic images.

A squirrel and an ant discover a mysterious feast with an invisible host in the depths of a forest. A whale and a seagull dance silently on a moon-drenched beach.  A grasshopper pays a fortune for a speck of dust.

Perfectly complemented by Jessica Ahlberg's delicate illustrations, this collection is intelligent, moving, and funny.
