The world of Rip Squeak exists in a summer cottage in the country where no humans live ten months out of the year. The stories are about Rip Squeak and his little sister Jesse and their strange friendship with Abbey, an abandoned kitten, and a frog named Euripides.Through Rip’s own words, the books introduce the stories of these creatures and the friendships they develop, setting the stage for adventures yet to come. Rip Squeak, the mouse, and his little sister Jesse live inside the walls of a summer cottage. Their friend Abbey, an abandoned kitten, prefers to befriend creatures like mice and frogs and birds rather than other cats. Rip, Jesse and Abbey meet Euripides, an entertaining actor and storyteller who lives and breathes the theater. When the family that lives in the little cottage is gone, the excitement begins. Rip Squeak and his sister, Jesse, with the help of Abbey and Euripides, discover a whole new world that's been right under their noses!
