After we finished Mr. Popper's Penguins, I thought to read Stuart Little to my grandson. He wasn't getting into it, so we switched to Charlotte's Web. But, I decided I wanted to finish up Stuart Little, and so I have.

Stuart Little was born to a "normal" family, but he came out small and very mouse like. Still they loved him and Stuart thrived. At some point they took in a bird named Margalo. Then one day, Margalo disappeared and Stuart went off in search of her. He had a small motor car and decided to head north.

I found it rather a cute little book. I'm not sure what it was that didn't capture Anderson's fancy.

Why does a mouse have a gun?! ( )

I read this book because my mother was the musical director for this play at the Wilmington Drama League. She and I both wanted to see how it differed from the musical and it was rather spot on. Honestly, this book was a cute read, but I felt like it was rather rushed in the second half of the book and the ending wasn't well rounded. I feel like there could have been a lot more to this book.

This is the story of a family whose child is, inexplicably, a mouse. He is almost murdered by a cat, and develops an unhealthy obsession with a bird. He also self sabotages a date with a woman who is two inches tall.

The ending involves advice from a telephone repair man and includes a somewhat sudden cliffhanger.

There are also an inordinate number of tiny boats involved, which always takes me out of the narrative. ( )
