Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2–Two mice brothers have nothing in common except for their mutual dislike. Pip the painter is distracted by Squeak's singing, and Squeak can't stand the smell of his sibling's paints. They live in opposite sides of a large house and avoid crossing paths whenever possible. At their annual party, each brother presents his work to his friends while the other refuses to participate. One year, their efforts to outdo each other culminate in such a disaster that they find themselves working together to recover it. In the process, they reconcile their differences and throw the best party ever. The watercolor illustrations are filled with witty and whimsical details of small mice living among full-size human objects. A tricycle tire becomes a Ferris wheel, and a Chapstick tube is the post at the end of a banister. The writing is clear and clever. Chairs tipped, pictures flipped, music ripped. 'EEK!' Squeak squawked. 'YEEK!' Pip yipped. The lyricism of the text will make this a satisfying read-aloud, and the clever details in the art make it a satisfying read-alone.–Amelia Jenkins, Juneau Public Library, AK

My boys love this book. The pictures of the mouse town are so detailed that my four year old will sit and study them for half an hour at a time and my two year old will join him as I read the cute story.
