Summary (taken from Common Sense Media):
A mouse goes cross-country to seek his fortune and find a lost friend, falling into adventure after adventure along the way. His cheerful ingenuity always saves him from danger. From outwitting a cat to surviving an afternoon of substitute teaching, Stuart always knows just what to do. One of White's three classic animal stories, Stuart has captivated generations of children.
I thought this book was only okay. It's cute and fun, for sure. Stuart definitely has a lot of adventures and kids would most definitely love the direct, matter-of-fact way in which these wacky events are recounted. It's a fast read and quickly goes from one event to another. The one thing I didn't like about this book was how it ended. The main problem isn't resolved and I hate when that happens in any book.
The narration wasn't anything fantastic. It's kind of nice in the sense that it kind of sounds like your grandmother telling you a story, but there's nothing to make Harris stand out as a narrator. There was nothing that bothered me about her, but there was nothing that would make me recommend her specifically.
