Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2-These two beginning readers are based on incidents from the movie Stuart Little, which took its name from the book, but basically that's all. In one story, the little mouse climbs into a vase while hiding from a cat, but then needs the help of the feline to get free. In the second book, Stuart has an adventure with a large fish and a turtle while piloting a toy boat across a park lake. Both are in an accessible, easy-reader format with large type and colorful pictures based on the movie, but they are a poor relation to E. B. White's famous Stuart Little (HarperCollins, 1945). Neither "adventure" is from the original book, so why steal the stars? It is blatant commercialism to take a famous character and a few familiar details (the names of the boat and the cat) and put them in watered-down scenarios. These offerings are a disservice to children's literature and to its readers.

I decided to buy this because the condition supposed to be "very good". But actual condition was "bad". The book was dirty and even had some drawing on it. The story itself is really good.

Format: Hardcover
Usually when a new author takes over for a character's creator or begins to write adventures in some other author's imagined world these new efforts fall flat. (Ruth Plumly Thompson's Oz novels and Brad Strickland's Lewis Barnavelt stories are notable exceptions). Add to that that readers based on movies are quite often uninspired, flat, and boring...and the chances of this new line of Stuart Little adventures don't look good. As is obvious by the rating above, they succeed admirably! Stuart Sets Sail and Stuart Hides Out are exciting (for the reader audience) NEW adventures that keep to the original spirit of White's characters (or at least the characters as presented in the movie). With the sequel coming out soon, they will likely be popular. Good for Susan Hill and Lydia Halverson. The stories are good and the pictures are charming!
