Rip Squeak and his sister Jesse live in a little cottage in the woods. They meet a very sad and lonely little kitten called Abbey and, being kind and generous little mice, they set about making friends with Abbey. In no time at all Abbey is showing them around her home and the three new friends are having a wonderful time.

Abbey takes Rip and Jesse out into the garden and introduces them to her very odd and delightful frog friend Euripides who tells the most wonderful stories and comes up with terrific ideas for adventures and games.

This simple yet luscious little board book is sure to whet the appetite of its young readers for the picture book adventures of Rip Squeak on which it is based.
