Description

Imagine The Borrowers in the White House! This fun new chapter book series follows a family of mice as a new president moves into their home! 
 
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.
 
A new president is moving into the White House, and best of all she has kids! That means cool kid treasures for Ava and Dean Squeakerton. Maybe they’ll even find a Lego! There’s only one problem. . . . Sneaking around means Ava and Dean will each have to be as quiet as a . . . mouse. And the Squeakerton siblings aren’t so good at that. But moving day is so busy, nobody would notice two mice searching for toys . . . right?
 
This new series is 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. Kids learning about the election will gobble up these adventures!

Praise For Commander in Cheese #1: The Big Move

"This accessible chapter book features large print, a well-paced story, and appealing black-and-white drawings that strike a cheerful tone overall. While this down-to-earth adventure has a twenty-first-century setting, the information in the back matter stretches back to 1789 with portraits of the presidents, a few glimpses of presidential history, and descriptions of inauguration days as well as White House moving days. An easygoing combination of fiction, fact, and fun." --Booklist
