Children's book by E.B. White, published in 1945. The episodic story of the title character, a two-inch-tall boy who resembles a mouse, is noted for its understated humor, graceful wit, and ironic juxtaposition of fantasy and possibility. Despite his diminutive stature--his family is of normal size--Stuart is a dashing, picaresque hero who is confident and courageous. His daring escapades include racing a toy boat in a Central Park pond, retrieving his mother's ring from a drain, and crawling inside a piano to fix the keys for his brother. He embarks on a quest to find his beloved Margalo, a little bird who is frightened away by the ferocious family cat, Snowbell.
