The classic story by E. B. White, author of the Newbery Honor Book Charlotte's Web and Trumpet of the Swan, about one small mouse on a very big adventure!

Stuart Little is no ordinary mouse. Born to a family of humans, he lives in New York City with his parents, his older brother George, and Snowbell the cat. Though he's shy and thoughtful, he's also a true lover of adventure.

Stuart's greatest adventure comes when his best friend, a beautiful little bird named Margalo, disappears from her nest. Determined to track her down, Stuart ventures away from home for the very first time in his life. He finds adventure aplenty. But will he find his friend?

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Just watch the movie This book was kind of ...weird. There wasn't really a plot and the Stuart kind of annoyed me. It just fell flat because it wasn't interesting! Nothing like what i was expecting and if I was still a child I don't think that I would be very entertained by it. I used to love the movie though! Definitely movie>book in this case

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing ---SPOILER WARNING-- I read this to my daughter over the past couple of weeks, a chapter or two at a time. Most of the stories within this book are only a chapter or two long so there was no loss of continuity by breaking it up over several nights of reading. This book is supposed to be a much loved classic. I honestly can't see why. I really did not like this book. The notions of gender roles in the family are terribly outdated. The main character, Stuart, is reprehensible. He abandons his family to follow a girl that he knows he will never find without even saying goodbye. He wanders the road squandering his money without any consequence. He meets a lovely girl who shows genuine interest in him, but he treats her rudely, practically blaming her for his own carelessness. Things don't go his way, so he throws a tantrum, turns his back on an offer of friendship, and continues to pursue the girl he will never find. Themes like that belong in adult books. If someone is going to behave that way in a children's book, there should be consequences for their actions.

From Our Editors

The newest member of the Little household may be a mouse, but Mom, Dad and big brother take it all in stride: after all, he's family! Stuart has cool little outfits, his own tiny car (though we're not sure that's legal) and he even captains a miniature yacht! The only one with any misgivings is the family cat, Snowbell, and he's not only territorial, he's hungry! Thank goodness the Littles have added: "No eating family members" to the rule book! E.B. White is famous for creating charismatic animal characters -- like the "radiant" porker Wilbur and his sweet arachnid friend Charlotte from Charlotte's Web, and Louis, the swinging horn-playing cygnet from The Trumpet of the Swan -- but Stuart is no exception. He's a mouse of immense personality and ingenuity, and a natty dresser, too! The adventures of this vertically-challenged hero are a delight to read, especially the dramatic boat race in Central Park, and his brave quest to find his missing friend. Ages 9-12.
