A favorite!

My 6 year old loves this book. So far we have read it four times in a row, plus we checked out the CD recording from the library and have been listening to it over and over at lunch. Although he also likes E.B. White’s other books, Stuart has really captutured his heart.

Matt's review of Stuart Little

E.B. White's book Stuart Little was fascinating because it had lots of exciting things Stuart did. Stuart Little is a little mouse. He is three years old and he lives with a human family. His older brother is named George. The other characters include a cat named Snowbell and a bird - his new friend named Margalo. From driving an invisible car, to racing a ship on the pond in Central Park, to his relationship with his family, his learning to survive in a human's world was extraordinary. I give this book five ***** because it is very exciting and fun to read.

One of the most excellent pieces of children's literature

I fell in love with White's "Stuart Little" in the 4th grade, when my teacher read this gem of a book out loud to us. Even today, as an adult, the clever, jaunty Stuart Little is a favorite of mine. The book is about the adventures of Stuart, a small mouse who was born to human parents. From driving a model car given him by his dentist friend to his run-ins with the family cat, Stuart's innocent hi-jinx and fun-loving nature will keep kids and adults laughing. "Stuart Little" is a lively getaway from our sometimes violent and tumultuous world.

Stuart Little

Stuart Little is about a mouse who was born to a normal human family. Stuart must overcome large obstacles as a small being. One day Margalo, a bird, entered Stuart's life. They became instant friends. One day the family cat, Snowbell, and an alley cat came up with a plan to kill Margalo. Another bird overheard the plan and sent a note to Margalo. Margalo left and almost falls in love, but nothing cound keep Stuart from searching for Margalo. Stuart Little is a wonderful novel that appeals to children because of its curious blend of fantasy and reality. Children can relate to some of the obstacles Stuart encounters because of his size. This story helps children to learn to use determination in order to overcome obstacles they might face in life.

what a great book for children

"When Mrs. Frederick C. Little's second child arrived . . . the baby looked much like a mouse in every way." (pg.1) In fact, her second child is a mouse; however, the family treats him like a member of the family. They never even say the m-word (mouse), as to not hurt Stuart's feelings. Throughout the book, Stuart encounters numerous exciting adventures, unknown to his protective family. Children love the idea that even though Stuart is 2inches-tall he still overcomes many obstacles. Stuart Little's emotions and adventures he experiences in this book are very similar to what children face every day; for example, going to the dentist, first love, being homesick, and bullies. One underlying theme I found within the book was accepting children for their differences and not sheltering them from lifes' experiences.

The best ending... melancholy

The most common complaint about Sutart Little is the ending, or lack of ending. I disagree. The story is one of growing up, and sadness, and yearning for something just out of reach. The brilliant E.B. White denies us a happy-Disney ending, avoids "closure". The story is just like life; it is a journey, not a package. The loose ends don't need to be cleared up with a sequel. Stuart has grown up and struck off on his own, the end. When I first read this story as a young boy, it gave me my first taste of melancholy. This should be the first "profound" book that a child reads, for it leaves you feeling sad, but hopeful.
