    1. • Pip is an Artist and his brother Squeak is a song writer and singer. The two do not get along. Pip’s paints smell bad and bother Squeaks throat and Squeak’s singing is too annoying and breaks Pip’s concentration. They live on opposite sides of the house to avoid one another. Every year they have a party and show off their talents, well this year they both want to use the large room in the middle of house. They must learn to work together if their party is going to go smoothly. • Grad [...]

    2. Read this one to my daughter and thought it was a pretty cute story. Good tale of siblings/friends coming together and working together.

    3. Siblings are different and they fight. Pip and Squeak on the other hand find each other completely appalling. Each year they do exactly one even together, the Christmas party. But when both brothers get on each others last nerve their beautifully set up party is destroyed by their fight. What do they do? The guest will be arriving soon! The brothers are forced to work together and eventually come up with a beautiful set up by working together. This book is a wonderful tool for predicting, proble [...]

    4. Pip and squeak are two brothers who do not get along. I actually thought the book was a little weak but the author must be on to something: Emerson has asked to reread this book several times and as we read through it he points at the mice at different activities and announces naughty mice or nice mice. Finally they make up and work cooperatively to put on a great performance for all their friends.

    5. An interesting tale of sibling rivalry gone askew, with two brothers living together, but hardly speaking to one another and always trying to one-up the other during their annual party. This is a good book to read when you are trying to get two siblings to get along.

    6. Two brothers with different tastes, one in music, one in art. They learn to get it together by the end so they can both be the star of the show. What I learned from this book: it's tough having siblings.

    7. Sibling rivalry rules the lives of brother mice, Pip and Squeak. Take extra time to examine the illustrations for added details of mouse life.

    8. A cute read on sibling rivalry. One that is good to read to your children after a silly argument. My kids enjoyed it.

    9. A wonderful tale of sibling rivalry and artistic competition! Kate's wry text is well served by her endearing illustrations. Yay!

    10. This was quite the book of sibling rivalry. My girls didn't really understand all the fighting (I'm glad!) they just liked the pictures of mice in clothes.
