Squeak the Mouse Likes His House
(Holiday House, Oct. 23, 2018)
Explore the house with Squeak and find all his favorite things in this Guided Reading Level C book, from the illustrator of the Biscuit series.To a tiny creature like Squeak, a sneaker can become a bed, a toy can become a vehicle, and a few crumbs can become a meal. What's not to like? The simple text features a repeating pattern to help emerging readers predict and decode unfamiliar words, with illustrations offering additional detail and clues to convey the story. The cozy watercolors by bestselling illustrator Pat Schories alternate between the close up mouse's-eye-view of Squeak's home, and wide shots showing the giant human world and the two human children who share it. Young readers will enjoy the change in scale, and delight in finding Squeak scampering across every spread. Also includes a maze, following Squeak's journey through the house.
