Ian Schoenherr grew up near Locktown, New Jersey. He has written and illustrated three books—Read It, Don't Eat It!; Cat & Mouse; and Pip & Squeak—and illustrated numerous books by other authors, including Little Raccoon's Big Question, by Miriam Schlein. The artist lives in Woodside, New York.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 1—Squeak reminds her friend Pip not to forget Gus's birthday present as the two mice rush to his party. But there's freshly fallen snow and an exciting ride on an envelope-turned-sled, and the cheese is forgotten. With no time to turn back, Pip tries to find a substitute, each of which is rejected by his companion. Then he spots something big and orange on the face of a snowman. Surely it must be cheese? At this point, children will be shouting out that it's a carrot, not cheese, and will share in Squeak's concern when Pip falls into the snow. The mouse lands safely, and the two proceed to the festivities with the new gift. The party scene, with charming details of acorn-top cups and bottle-cap hats, delivers the surprise that the birthday boy is a rabbit, making a carrot the perfect present after all. The spare, uncluttered images will make easy viewing for storytimes, although the intended humor of the large gnome, flamingo, and other lawn statuary that populate the snowy pages may be lost on young children. An appealing if not essential pick.—Susan Moorhead, New Rochelle Public Library, NY
