Elwyn Brooks White was one of the original writers for "The New Yorker" magazine. Over the course of several years he contributed satirical sketches, poems, essays, and editorials. He wrote his first book for children, STUART LITTLE, after he dreamed of a tiny boy who acted like a mouse. His 1952 classic, CHARLOTTE'S WEB, is actually set on the Maine farm where White and his wife lived. After a sabbatical of 18 years, he published his third and final novel for children, THE TRUMPET OF THE SWAN. E. B. White won many awards for his writing, including the 1963 Presidential Medal of Freedom, the 1970 Laura Ingalls Wilder Medal, and the 1971 National Medal for Literature. He also received the National Institute of Arts and Letters' Gold Medal for Essays and Criticism and was elected to the American Academy of Arts and Letters.
"Endearing for young and old, full of wit and wisdom and amusement."
From the Publisher
Stuart Little, the Little's second son, looks very much like a mouse--he has whiskers, a long tail, and is only a little more than two inches tall. Dapper, elegant, and heroic, Stuart is content with his life in New York City, a dangerous yet exciting place for a mouse. Then he meets Margalo, a pretty bird whom the Littles had found half-dead on their doorstep and revived. When Margalo leaves without telling anyone, Stuart sets off in a little car to search for the love of his life.
When Mrs. Frederick C. Little's second son arrived, everybody noticed that he was not much bigger than a mouse.
