Stuart Little
'The doctor was delighted with Stuart and said it was very unusual for an American family to have a mouse.' In this beloved fable, Stuart Little is a mouse who lives with his parents and brother in New York City. Sensitive and intelligent, Stuart is a gentleman from the top of his hat to the tip of his tail. His tiny size leads him into mishaps, such as getting rolled up in a window blind. But he also goes on heroic adventures: saving his friend, the bird Margalo, from the cat Snowball, and captaining a toy yacht on the lake in Central Park. As Stuart points out, 'Size has nothing to do with it. It’s temperament and ability that count.'

This edition features Williams's original illustrations, coloured by Rosemary Wells. Tony DiTerlizzi, the co-creator of the phenomenally successful Spiderwick Chronicles, has written a new introduction providing vivid biographical sketches of White and Williams. Praising White as a 'master wordsmith', he writes that, 'Even today, his is the kind of prose that entices you to curl up in your favourite worn armchair on a rainy afternoon with book in hand.'

E. B. White (1899—1985)

Elwyn Brooks White was born in Mount Vernon, New York, in 1899. After graduating from Cornell University in 1921, he worked as a reporter before returning to New York City in 1924. He published his first article in The New Yorker magazine in 1925, and joined the magazine’s staff two years later. He went on to work there for six decades, becoming one of the magazine’s most important contributors. Although widely recognised for his essays and poetry, White is equally remembered for his writing for young readers. In 1970 he was awarded the prestigious Laura Ingalls Wilder Medal in honour of his outstanding contribution to children’s literature, and in 1978 he won the Pulitzer Special Award for Literature. He died in 1985.
