9780525477778: The Tale of Pip and Squeak

With Pip complaining about Squeak's singing and Squeak furious over the fumes from Pips paints, the two siblings see no room for negotiation in their small little home, but when the competition between the two turns into a theatrical extravaganza, good times are had and all hard feelings are finally put to rest.

About the Author:

Kate Duke has written and illustrated many books for children. She and her husband live in New Haven, Connecticut.

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
