Summary:

This book is about a mouse named Stuart Little. Stuart Little lives with his family in New York City, and he has a friend, who is a bird named, Margalo. One day she goes missing, and he goes on an adventure to find his friend and bring her home.

Personal Reaction:

This book was one I read as a child, and loved the sense of adventure it created.

Classroom Extension Idea:

1) In the classroom, we can all talk about our pets that we have at home.
2) The children can create a booklet about their best friends.

Fun book as a child. ( )

Another well written book by E.B. White. However, this was probably our least favorite of the three. Mainly because, as Rebekah said, "I wish it had a happy ending." This one seemed to be a little more dated than the other two. I wonder if someday, it will be too dated to be appreciated. At the very least, one would hope that we would always appreciate great craft, as one does with Dickens even though much of his work is culturally set and requires an understanding of 19th century England to fully appreciate it what is going on.
We just hope that Stuart is able to find Margalo somewhere in the flyleaf. ( )

Delightful little story - Stuart is so sweet and polite. Sad that the ending came too soon, I would have liked to follow him on his travels as he journeyed north. ( )

Lovely story. After having seen the animated film, I realized I had never read the children's book. Does the author talk down to his audience? I'm not sure and though I enjoyed it, I was in a rush to finish it. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0064400565, Paperback)

Narrator Julie Harris draws upon her extraordinary acting talents to raise this much-loved tale of a teeny, tiny explorer and his oversized adventures to new heights. "Stuart put on his sailor hat and his sailor suit, took his spy glass down from the shelf and set for a walk full of the joy of life and the fear of dogs." Skipping from one precarious perch to the next, the diminutive wanderer makes new friends, meets old ones, and shares his lust for life with listeners of all ages. Harris's clever, lyrical narration is wonderfully evocative and perfectly captures the charming yet soulful spirit of E.B. White's classic children's tale. (Running time: 2 hours, 2 cassettes) --George Laney
