Author of Sylvester and the Magic Pebble and the Dr. Desoto books, this is a chapter book about a mouse who gets swept away by a rainstorm and ends up on an 'island'. If you like Charlotte's Web you'll like this one!

I enjoyed this little book, but I am a middle aged grown up. I like William Steig's drawings and the story. However, I would be quite surprised if children enjoyed it. The main character is a bourgeois (mouse) person who is thrown into a wilderness situation and experiences the seasons outdoors.
