"Harvey's Hideout" Book

Harvey's Hideout was written by Russell Hoban in 1969. It's a fun little book about a brother and sister muskrat who start out quarrelling and bragging to one another about being invited to parties or secret club meetings that the other sibling isn't invited to. They each pretend to go off to a party of their own for a few days until one day they stumble upon each other's hideouts --Harvey accidentally digs a tunnel into his sister's hideout cave -- and discover that neither of them really have friends to play with. They resolve their mutual loneliness by playing together and being good friends instead of quarrelsome siblings.
