If I could Fly

Let me introduce you to Rip Squeak.
He is a little mouse that dreams of flying.
Have you ever dreamt of flying?
I have.

I came across Rip Squeak books the
last time I was in California.
They are written by Lee Cohen and
illustrated by Julia Harnett Harvey.

The gentle, beautiful illustrations and stories are just delightful.
The book I brought home is titled "Find the Magic"
The cast of characters are led to find the magic
and they find it in books.
A totally wonderful book for all ages.
The books are published by Rip Squeak, Inc.
840 Capitolio Way, Suite B
San Luis Obispo, CA 93405

That is a lovely illustration and the books sound cute. I have a new grandbaby on the way, so I'll have to look for them.

Thanks for the review.

Hello Dear Marilyn!

Oh my goodness isn't he the sweet one. I had not heard of this author. I love books with sweet illustrations, and Rip Squeak is certainly wonderful.

I have a small collection of children books that I love! The humble stories and illustrations of children books simply capture my heart, they also remind me of many of the wonderful things that we as adults sometimes forget.:o) As to your question, yes I have dreamed of flying. How wonderful it would be if we really could.:o)

That is a really lovely illustration. I do love children's books with beautiful illustrations. Now that my children are a little older, I don't always think to look for these as I once did. Thank you for sharing...
