Imagine The Borrowers in the White House! This fun new chapter book series follows a family of mice as a new president moves into their home!
If you are a mouse, then you might know about Ava and Dean Squeakerton. They are kind of famous, for mice. That’s because Ava and Dean and the rest of their family live in the White House.
A new president is moving into the White House, and best of all she has kids! That means cool kid treasures for Ava and Dean Squeakerton. Maybe they’ll even find a Lego! There’s only one problem. . . . Sneaking around means Ava and Dean will each have to be as quiet as a . . . mouse. And the Squeakerton siblings aren’t so good at that. But moving day is so busy, nobody would notice two mice searching for toys . . . right?
This new series is sure to thrill readers who love tiny details and big fun. Bonus back matter is filled with tons of cool facts about presidents, the White House, and U.S. history. Kids learning about the election will gobble up these adventures!

Gr 1–3—Ava and Dean Squeakerton are hidden residents of the White House. They, along with their numerous mouse family members, dwell secretly in the walls and attic of the presidential home, unbeknownst to the human occupants. The series opener takes place on a very important day: the inauguration of a new president. The small rodents are excited because this means new people with new belongings will be taking up residence below. They are always searching for artifacts for their Treasure Room, especially the most coveted of all things, "The Lego." They are sure the new president's son will have these awesome trinkets. Problem is, Ava and Dean take off exploring before the movers have even unpacked any boxes and find themselves in a bit of an awkward and dangerous situation. The human children, and their pet cat, see the little mice, and chaos ensues. The black-and-white illustrations are simple yet not without some charm, adding to the appeal for new readers. The borrowing tendencies of these young mice and their ancestors bring to mind John Peterson's "The Littles" series, though the writing here is not as polished or as clever as that of Peterson. VERDICT A simply told selection that may interest emerging readers who enjoy animal tales or are interested in the American presidency; an additional purchase for larger chapter book collections.—Carol Hirsche, Barnett Elementary, Payson, UT
