Product Description

From Amazon

How terribly surprised the Little family must have been when their second child turned out to be a small mouse. Apparently familiar with the axiom that "when in New York City, anything can happen," the Littles accept young Stuart into their family unquestioningly--with the exception of Snowbell the cat who is unable to overcome his instinctive dislike for the little mouse. They build him a bed from a matchbox, and supply him with all of the accoutrements a young mouse could need. Mrs. Little even fashions him a suit, because baby clothes would obviously be unsuitable for such a sophisticated mouse. In return, Stuart helps his tall family with errant Ping-Pong balls that roll outside of their reach.

E. B. White takes Stuart on a hero's quest across the American countryside, introducing the mouse--and the reader--to a myriad of delightful characters. Little finds himself embroiled in one adventure after another from the excitement of racing sailboats to the unseen horrors of substitute teaching. This is a story of leaving home for the first time, of growing up, and ultimately of discovering oneself. At times, doesn't everyone feel like the sole mouse in a family--and a world--of extremely tall people? (Ages 9 to 12) --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

From Booklist

Gr. 4-6. Readers will welcome this Spanish edition of a beloved tale, first published in 1945, about a two-inch-tall mouse with a big heart and a love for adventure. The fluid text resonates with the original wit and whimsy that marked White's clever intermingling of fantasy and real life. Miguez's joyous translation maintains the author's rhyming play on words by using appropriate substitutions--for example, gorrion, dragon, and raton for the English louse, grouse, and souse. A few Peninsular Spanish pronouns and conjugations (vuestras, podeis, sabreis) won't deter Spanish speakers from the Americas from enjoying Stuart Little's wonderful escapades. Isabel Schon

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Harlee Scott on June 11 2006
Format: Audio CD
I chose this book to read to my son (just turned 4) and he loved it. We had read, Charlottes Web, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and this was by far his favourite. He has asked for it often since. We repeated a few chapters (the one about the boat race and the chapter just before it) again and again and again.

I didn't mind it. I found Stuart to be quite delightful.

By A Customer on Dec 8 2003
Format: Paperback
I enjoyed reading Stuart Little. I really liked Stuart Little because I really like the adventure type books. If you've seen the movie or read the book before you would know that.
This book was written by E.B. White. I have read Charlotte's Web by E.B. White and I thought that was a great book so I read another book by him and it turned out great also.
Stuart Little has great adventures like sailing on a ship that is almost sunken by a paper bag (remember he is a mouse). Stuart also drives a little mini car that he drives all over the streets looking for his friend Margalo who escaped from being eaten by a cat (Margalo is a bird that the Littles found hurt so they brought her into their home).
Stuart runs into many nice strangers along the way. Stuart meets a little someone along the way also just about his size and this little someone is not a mouse like Stuart. You will have to read the book to find out. Stuart is about 2.5 inches tall and this someone is about 2 inches tall, guess who?
I think that Stuart is very brave and outgoing. Stuart actualy rebuilds a souvenier canoe with just a Spruce tree and some spruce gum. Stuart is so small that he buys his clothes and accesories at a doll shop and his bed is made out of a cigarette box and four clothespins. Stuart Little also has to turn on the sink's faucet by hitting it with a small hammer and he has to hang on a string and pull with all his might in order to turn on a light.
Overall, I think Stuart Little had a fun time on all his adventures and I know I had a fun time reading Stuart Little. For more information on Stuart little just read the book, I know you'll enjoy it.

By Reading for Fun on Nov. 27 2003
Format: Hardcover
Stuart Little belongs to animal fantasy. In the beginning, a baby mouse, Stuart Little, comes out, but we do not where it is from. According to the context, he could be an adopted boy or even born by his human parents. It is still a mystery.
Mr. and Mrs. Little prepare lots of small stuff for their new small son. It appears that Stuart is just a pet, but it is not. Stuart's physical development keeps being compared with a human baby since E.B. White tries to give readers a hint that Stuart is no more or less than a unique human baby. Stuart is as the same as humans. And Stuart behaves the same as humans do and even can talk to people. Everything normal becomes dramatically magical. It looks like a wonder. When the story goes on, readers will know that Stuart is treated as equally as a human being because for other people in the story he is normal. Every animal in the story can communicate with human beings without startling or frightening them. That is, it is those characters' real world, so there is no so-called wonder in the story. Because of the consistency of this kind of rule, young readers will think the story is dependable.
Stuart is a small mouse, so the world he looks at is different from that humans do. Everything for him is enormous and giant. He is as big as a cute souvenir. Then, everything he uses is specially designed for him because he is small.
To let readers know how small Stuart is, the author gives a human environment for him. And the environment is well described, and then it seems real to young readers. Stuart's human parents and brother has to help him lead a proper life in the environment. In this part, we can see how Stuart lives in that big place. Everything is detailed so that it is difficult for young readers to think the story is false.

I re-read this story a few months ago after about an 11 year gap. What a delightful experience! It`s a great book for kids, but reading it as an adult is fun, too, and you understand a lot more of the author`s tongue-in-cheek wit and his lyrical descriptions. Child readers will be entranced by Stuart`s clever adaptions to a world that is always bigger than he is: details like his matchbox bed, paper clip skates, and toy sailboat that he commandeers quite well are very original. I do recall thinking as a kid that it was weird that he was born looking so much like a mouse and everyone just takes it for granted, but you tend to forget about that as you get absorbed in the adventures. Stuart is also born with an enormous capacity for wit and a novel take on life- witness his verbal sparring with Snowbell the cat and his hilarious turn as a substitute teacher. Others have noted that the primary reason he appeals so much to kids is because they, too, have to cope each day with a huge, often bewildering adult world. I agree with this, while also offering the idea that another reason he`s easy to like is because he is a true individual who likes to do things in his own special manner. He does`nt mind if big people and animals find his custom-built car or tiny clothing and suitcase strange! By the end of the story, you`re really rooting for him to find his lovely little bird friend, Margalo, and you`re also quite disappointed that the tale ends so abruptly! If only White had written a Stuart sequel. I can`t say enough good things about Stuart, and re-discovering him has inspired me to both rent the movie and look for a copy of White`s essays.
