Oval Office Escape

Is the White House big enough for a family of mice . . . and a C-A-T?

If you are a mouse, then you might know about Ava and Dean Squeakerton. They are kind of famous, for mice. That’s because Ava and Dean and the rest of their family live in the White House.
For years, Ava and Dean have roamed the tunnels below the West Wing without fear. But now there’s a new pet in town, one that rhymes with hat and rat and whose name is spelled C-A-T. In the history of the White House, thirty-seven Squeakertons have died because a cat-shh, don’t say it out loud!-a C-A-T was hungry. Now Ava and Dean are worried that they might be added to that list. Will the Squeakerton siblings ever get to explore the White House again? Or is this game of C-A-T and mouse just too dangerous?

The Borrowers meets Ratatouille in this new chapter book series that’s sure to thrill readers who love tiny details and big fun. Bonus back matter is filled with tons of cool facts about presidents, the White House, and U.S. history.
