Format: Paperback
My 6-year-old daughter and I throughly enjoyed all three stories.
Most Creative Story: The "Trumpet Swan" because of the way White takes the reader to different places and settings through the eyes of Louis the Swan.
Most Profound Story: "Charlotte's web". Of all my years of education it took this simple book to grasp a real appreciation of nature and the web of life.
Funniest Story: "Stuart Little". Most of us have on more than one occassion laughed ourselves to tears upon reading, hearing, or watching some funny event. My last time occurred when reading about the trials and tribulations that Stuart had to endure in order to wash himslef in the morning (Picturing him swinging a mallot to turn on the hot water was for me hysterically funny!). I found the Stuart Little of this book much more cute and amusing than the one in a recent movie with the same title.

Stuart Little is a mouse and he is a great help around the house, but sometimes he gets into trouble, like when he got dumped in the garbage dump. I think it's cool how a human mommy and daddy had a baby who is a mouse instead of a kid. I like how Stuart liked Margalo the bird.
Kids that should read this book should be 4 or up.

Charlotte's Web/Stuart Little Jan. 10 2000
By Colleen Lim Tai Siew - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
These 2 books are not just fun and adventure but inlaid with more in-depth meaning. Friendship, trust and encouragement between 2 different species Charlotte (the spider) and Wilbur (the pig) - applies to people as well, whether you are of different races or colour
Take another example Stuart Little, despite the fact that a cat traditionally catches mouse, Snowbell (the cat) dismisses this tradition to save and befriend Stuart Little (the mouse). What more, human parents chose to adopt a mouse instead of their own human being to display selfless love.
These 2 titles make good moral reading for children.
They have accompanied me through childhood to adulthood and has thought me to be sensitive to people's feelings.

The Trumpet Review March 22 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
After Sam Beaver stumbles apon a lake and Louis the swan is hatched, the adventure begins. Louis was born without a voice but that didn't stop him from going to school, getting a trumpet, saving a life, recieving $4,000.00 from playing his trumpet, and getting a slate. On his adventure Louis get's a mate, goes to the Ritz, and just makes it through his swan life.
I thought this was a facinating book with fun facts and rich language. It is completely enjoyable and will make you laugh and cry. Out of all of E.B White's books I read, this has to be #1.
I recomend this book to anyone who likes romance and animals. 8-12 year olds will expecially love this book with it's humor and many other qualities.

Authentic Children's Books - Nov. 2 2006
By bkm425 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
So many kids books are written so poorly, and with such poor structure and weak story lines, they make it hard to convey any sense of flow or emotion to your kids. To pick up these classics reminds one of the golden age when authors wrote stories with meaning and impact. Glowing descriptions, scene setting introductions to chapters, polite conversations recorded in proper English, all this is the heritage of EB White and these books. Highly, highly recommended - your kids will not want to stop reading and listening...makes bedtime each night a joy because they can't wait to find out what happens next.

This is a great book - it has adventure and entertainment. Feb. 1 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The best part of this book was when the sail boat race took place. I liked that part because the policeman fell in the water. Also, I liked being able to see the world through a mouse's eyes. Margalo is a great character in the book because she is smart and she helped Stuart. I am looking forward to reading another book by E.B. White, such as Charlotte's Web and the Trumpet of the Swan.
