Book Review, Early Reader

Madam Squeaker by Pip Jones & illustrated by Paula Bowles

Madam Squeaker is the story of an adorable mouse with something important to say. The rats are eating everything and think they can do anything they like.  Not only that, but they want to send all the other animals to Bogland and have Hollyhock House to themselves. Following the advice of a wise owl, Minetta Squeaker finds her voice and stands up to the bullies. She makes sure that the other animals receive the respect they deserve.

This is such an empowering story that young readers will love. With an inspiring hero and lots at stake, readers will be gripped until the very end.

Published by Barrington Stoke, it is an appealing “Little Gem” story for readers age 5-8. As an early chapter book, it builds confidence through manageable sections of text, short chapters and many large, colourful (and super cute) illustrations. Children will develop their reading endurance with this incredibly appetizing story.

Thank you to Barrington Stoke for this fantastic book!
