Stuart Little by E.B. White
Published by The Penguin Group, 2000
ISBN 0-14-130506-1


The hit film Stuart Little has brought the book by the same name, first published in the U.S.A. in 1945, to the attention of millions of children worldwide. This edition, published in 2000, is greatly enhanced by the pictures of Garth Williams and makes a great read for children and adults alike.

Stuart Little is no ordinary mouse. Only two inches tall he survives in a world of adult humans with the added hazard of sharing his home with Snowbell the cat, in the heart of New York city. The story of Stuart Little is just one adventure after another, and when his adventures turn out to be dangerous, he gets absolutely no help from Snowbell, who delights in seeing him in trouble.

Stuart Little introduces the themes of friendship and families, each chapter bringing a new adventure which will help sustain the interest of young readers.
