Leonard Filgate and Susan-Yost Filgate have teamed as husband and wife, and as illustrator and writer of a series starring Rip Squeak, a mouse to rival Mickey for sheer fun. His latest is The Adventure in which he and his friends set sail on a local pond and encounter of mysterious monster. The ship and crew are in plenty of danger, but the surprise ending will reveal how much or how little. I guarantee you that, once you have read one Rip Squeak book, you will want to check out Rip Squeak and his Friends along with The Treasure. The illustrations are lush and the story moves along at a brisk pace. This story is just fine for those 4 and up. –Bookviews.com
