Stuart Little by E.B. White

“My name is Margalo,” said the bird in a musical voice. “I come from fields once tall with wheat, from pastures deep in fern and thistle; I come from vales of meadow-sweet, and I love to whistle.”

Stuart Little is a very sweet short children's book. I have always enjoyed Stuart's various adventures, but reading about him this time I was struck with how much Stuart acts like a child. He is innocently brave, whimsical and easily put off of things that don't turned out the way he had planned. I am glad he has Margalo to find. I think it will keep him going for years to come.
