Overview

The world of Rip Squeak exists in a summer cottage in the country where no humans live ten months out of the year. The stories are about Rip Squeak and his little sister Jesse and their strange friendship with Abbey, and abandoned kitten, and a frog named Euripides.


Rip and Jesse live inside the walls of a summer cottage. Abbey prefers to befriend creatures like mice and frogs and birds rather than other cats. She introduces Rip and Jesse to her friend Euripides, a very entertaining actor and storyteller who lives and breathes the theater.


Through Rip's own words, the books introduce the stories of these creatures and the friendships they develop, setting the stage for adventures yet to come.

How do you tell Mom and Dad you love them? How about throwing them a surprise party? For Rip Squeak and his friends, Jesse, Abbey and Euripides, it's all part of a nonstop, fun-filled day where cleaning the house, baking a cake and blowing up balloons becomes an adventure they'll never forget!

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Mary Hynes-Berry
Several years ago the husband and wife team of Susan Yost-Filgate and Leonard Filgate created a family of mice who are friends with a cat named Abby and a frog named Euripides. In this latest tale, the actual writing and illustration have been turned over to Cohen and De Neuville. As this story opens, Jesse and Rip Squeak, the mice children youngsters are planning a surprise party for their parents, Abby and Euripides arrive to help them with the preparations, including baking a large chocolate cake. Later they all join in the fun when the parents and the other guests arrive. The illustrations in particular are faithful to the brightly colored renditions of animals smiling in human dress in the original books. In fact, it seems likely that the illustrations are what will attract young children to linger over the book. The text and story are a little pedestrian. Reviewer: Mary Hynes-Berry
