This month's read was a sweet and fun one. Henry and I both enjoyed the adventures of the quirky little mouse Stuart Little. We spent the better part of many evenings this summer winding down from our day imagining what might happen next. If you are not familiar with the story, Stuart is a mouse who just happens to be born to a family of humans; and if that is not enough, they own a cat.
I think the back of the book actually gives a great synopsis:
"Stuart Little is a mouse in the family of the Frederick C. Littles and is a pleasantly debonair little character, with a shy, engaging manner and a somewhat philosophical turn of mind ... His great adventure comes when, at the age of seven, he sets out in the world to seek his dearest friend, Margalo, a beautiful little bird who stayed for a few days in the Littles' Boston fern."
This book was written in 1945 (I believe) and in my opinion was way ahead of it's time. Families and friends come in all shapes, sizes, and colors ... we could all learn a lot from the Littles.
