Synopsis

Published in 1945, Stuart Little was E. B. White's first children's story. It is the tale of a young New Yorker named Stuart Little who had the "shy, pleasant manner of a mouse" and in fact, is an actual mouse. In 2005 a hardbound edition of the book was published to celebrate the sixtieth anniversary of the first edition of Stuart Little .

On Mar 20 2019, a reader said:
This classic remains timeless. E.B. White is a master in giving children an engaging story while weaving nature lore and nature facts throughout. Children identify with short statured Stuart Little who must navigate the world of large people with his wits and fortitude. Children follow his adventures all the while subtly learning about the lives of cats, birds and even flora around him. Highly recommend.
