A hardcover edition of this treasured story, for which Garth Williams's original black-and-white line drawings for the jacket of Stuart Little have been colorized by the celebrated illustrator Rosemary Wells. Stuart Little is no ordinary mouse. Born to a family of humans, he lives in New York City with his parents, his older brother George, and Snowbell the cat. Though he's shy and thoughtful, he's also a true lover of adventure. Stuart's greatest adventure comes when his best friend, a beautiful little bird named Margalo, disappears from her nest. Determined to track her down, Stuart ventures away from home for the very first time in his life. He finds adventure aplenty. But will he find his friend?

Stuart Little is E.B. White's classic tale of a little mouse who has some great big adventures. It's a perfect read-aloud book for little ones, or a great chapter book for elementary school-aged kids to tackle on their own. White's prose is warm and enjoyable for kids and adults alike. The illustrations throughout this edition really helped my 3.5-year-old follow the story throughout the book too!
