Title: Pippa Mouse by Betty Boegehold
Join Pippa mouse and her friends, Weber Duck, Gray Bird and Ripple Squirrel, as they take part in some fun and wholesome adventures! The friends build nests, work together, play on the ice and celebrate Christmas together.
I absolutely adore this book! It is so fun, cute and innocent that you can’t keep from liking it. Pippa mouse is a playful and inquisitive young mouse who likes to get others to join in her adventures. Each story features one of her short adventures.
The overall story is very simple, reminding me of the Frog and Toad books by Arnold Lobel. They have that same story form and wonderful drawings which are just as integral to the story as the text.
The illustrations are by Cyndy Szekeres and are done in nature-centric 70’s style. They are thoroughly charming and make the animals look so cute you could just gobble them up. Just seeing the drawings of Pippa Mouse kind of makes you fall in love with her. 🙂
I recommend Pippa Mouse to young readers, and to families as an excellent read-aloud story. I think it will become a new family favorite.
