This book is about a mouse named Stuart who is adopted by the Littles. He likes staying there. One day Stuart jumps into a trashcan, and gets dumped into the city dump. A bird named Margalo who has been staying with the Littles saves Stuart. Stuart begins to like Margalo. Snowbell, the Little's cat, gets his friend Angora to try to eat Margalo. Margalo finds out by a pigeon that told her, and runs away. Stuart notices she's gone the next morning. What will he do about it? Read the book to find out.

My favorite part in the book was when Stuart sailed the ship to win the race because when the two ships got tangled, Start fell out, and you didn't know what was going to happen to him. The unique thing about this book is that it's about a little mouse who has big adventures, and who has a family with people. This is not like any other book because this is about a little mouse who was adopted by a human family. He can even talk and communicate. They make him a little robe, money, bed, toothbrush, and clothes. As I read the book I felt excited, and it made me wonder what will happen next, and what Stuart's next adventure would be.

I recommend this book to anybody who likes reading about animals with big adventures because I like that too, and I thought that this book was great! What might interest you more is the characters: Stuart the mouse, Snowbell the cat, Margalo the bird, and Stuart's family, and last but not least, the Littles. I loved this book and so will you!
