Top Customer Reviews
Most Creative Story: The "Trumpet Swan" because of the way White takes the reader to different places and settings through the eyes of Louis the Swan.
Most Profound Story: "Charlotte's web". Of all my years of education it took this simple book to grasp a real appreciation of nature and the web of life.
Funniest Story: "Stuart Little". Most of us have on more than one occassion laughed ourselves to tears upon reading, hearing, or watching some funny event. My last time occurred when reading about the trials and tribulations that Stuart had to endure in order to wash himslef in the morning (Picturing him swinging a mallot to turn on the hot water was for me hysterically funny!). I found the Stuart Little of this book much more cute and amusing than the one in a recent movie with the same title.
Take another example Stuart Little, despite the fact that a cat traditionally catches mouse, Snowbell (the cat) dismisses this tradition to save and befriend Stuart Little (the mouse). What more, human parents chose to adopt a mouse instead of their own human being to display selfless love.
These 2 titles make good moral reading for children.
They have accompanied me through childhood to adulthood and has thought me to be sensitive to people's feelings.
I thought this was a facinating book with fun facts and rich language. It is completely enjoyable and will make you laugh and cry. Out of all of E.B White's books I read, this has to be #1.
I recomend this book to anyone who likes romance and animals. 8-12 year olds will expecially love this book with it's humor and many other qualities.
Stuart Little is an interesting book. I enjoyed reading it beacause it was funny and it had interesting vocabulary. There were some sad parts in the book. This Book got me absorbed into it.
I would recommend this book for children of the ages of 8 to 12. If you like fantasy stories then you would love this book. If you are a person who likes certain kinds of fantasy books then you should probably enjoy Stuart Little because you may get absorbed into the book. Also if you like fantasy books that have animals in it that talk and you like the Author E.B.White then you'll like this book.
These books are great ones to read to them, then great ones for them to read themselves.
