* *   Reviewed by Hilary Williamson

Will met Squill and Squill met Will when they were little - and, despite all their mothers tried to do to keep them apart, 'Squill wanted Will / and Will wanted Squill.' The only odd thing about this, of course, is that Will is a little boy. and Squill is a squirrel.

Will took his first steps with Squill and Squill had his first swim with Will. They grew together and swung together and jumped together and tried things - like squilletti and wilkshake - together. Then one day, Will's parents give him a kitten. When Will plays with her, Squill is jealous and Will sends him away. But the kitten turns out to be not nearly as much fun as Will's oldest friend.

They miss each other, say sorry, and get back together (the kitten finds a home too) in this tale about the strength of even the most unlikely friendship. Will and Squill is a squilly story with a punny ending - 'where there's a Squill / there's a Will, / and it was better that way.'
