    One thought on “The Vole Brothers”

    1. The vole brothers are two rodents who love to eat, and they're so hungry they could eat a cat! Instead, they follow a yummy scent until they come upon a pizza. They succeed in getting it away from the cat, but then the pepperoni disappears. Finding it might be easy, but finding something else to eat proves difficult.This picture book features characters who originally appeared in a monthly feature in Chirp Magazine. The story reads a lot like a comic strip, with lots of speech bubbles to indicat [...]

    2. Two voles are still hungry even after having consumed quite a bit of food. They decide to stalk a cat for their next meal. The cat, in turn, smells some discarded pepperoni pizza, and the race is on to see who will end up with the slice. Young readers will enjoy seeing the voles and other animals as they are munching on their meals as well as delighting in the simple words used in the text. The whole purpose of the book and the illustrations seems to be to show how ravenous these voles are. No m [...]

    3. What a fun, entertaining read. The Vole Brothers are off to find something to eat, but their misfortunes almost have them ending up as dinner. This is a simple, easy to read, well illustrated that book that we really enjoyed. Having little words on each page not only makes it an engaging story, but it's perfect for preschool age kids and beginning readers.

    4. The Vole Brothers is a zany book my daughter and I enjoyed. I've not read the author's other series The Mole Sisters but will look for them the next time we are at the library.The book summary has way more text than the actual book. There are just a few words on each page making it a great read for preschool aged children. Expressive illustrations bring the story to life.

    5. Written by the same author (she's Canadian!) as the beloved "Mole Sisters", "The Vole Brothers" will not disappoint. It's got the same quirky humour but a little rougher around the edges. Sure to appeal to reluctant readers. I would recommend it for preschoolers.

    6. Not particularly innovative plot-wise, but I think beginning readers would enjoy having so many picture clues to help figure out the story. Sort of a very-early graphic novel.
