Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In a sequel to PeeWee's Tale, Lexi's Tale by Johanna Hurwitz, illus. by Patience Brewster, follows Lexi the squirrel and PeeWee the guinea pig as they pair up to help a homeless man in New York City's Central Park.

From School Library Journal

Gr 2-4-The adventures of the guinea pig introduced in PeeWee's Tale (SeaStar, 2000) continue in this easy chapter book. He is befriended by Lexi, a squirrel that shows him how to survive the wilds of Central Park. Lexi has a vast extended family (including brother Madison, sister Sixty-two, and cousin Columbus), and he quotes extensively from his mother, passing along her wisdom to his pal. PeeWee, who has a near miss with the jaws of a dog, trusts humans and eventually convinces Lexi to believe in them, too. Brewster's soft, small pencil illustrations have a tender quality. This clever story is chock-full of positive messages, but also contains enough adventure and suspense to hold young readers' interest.

Format: Paperback
My Kindergartener loves this series, and I love all the little messages and opportunities for discussions that the book affords. The story is all about animals and life in Central Park from their perspective. The tidbits we learned about Guinea Pigs are right on (we own one) and the opportunity for perspective taking is very good for kids this age (developmental psych is my area of expertise professionally). Enjoyable read for the whole family.

I work at a Library, so I'm always reading books to recommend to patrons of all ages. I stumbled across this book as I was moving books around. I found the book to be a cute read, that I think young readers would love. I enjoyed the antics of Lexi the squirrel.
