Rip Squeak, the mouse, and his little sister Jesse live inside the walls of a summer cottage. Their friend Abbey, an abandoned kitten, prefers to befriend creatures like mice and frogs and birds rather than other cats. Rip, Jesse and Abbey meet Euripides, an entertaining actor and storyteller who lives and breathes the theater.
When the family that lives in the little cottage is gone, the excitement begins. Rip Squeak and his sister, Jesse, with the help of Abbey and Euripides, discover a whole new world that's been right under their noses!
Containing less than 800 words, the simplified English-only version of the original Rip Squeak and His Friends will be an instant favorite of children young and old.
This title is available in an English–only and a Spanish-only edition.
Author and Illustrator
Susan Yost-Filgate and Leonard Filgate live and work in a wonderful old house in California's Central Valley. Creating art with a childhood theme and whimsy brings Leonard great pleasure. He and his wife, Susan, developed Rip Squeak & His Friends out of a need to create characters that would express Leonard's philosophy that art should imitate the best life has to offer, whether it be real or from somewhere deep within the imagination. His desire and intentions are simple–that his art makes the view smile and feel good.
