Publisher's Summary

Stuart Little is a shy, philosophical little mouse with a big heart and a taste for adventure. In spite of his diminutive stature, barely two inches tall, Stuart sets forth into the world with some mighty big plans: to ride a Fifth Avenue bus, to win a sailboat race in Central Park, and to teach school for a day. But Stuart's greatest adventure begins when he decides to find his best friend, Margalo, a pretty little bird who once lived in a Boston fern in the Littles' house in New York City. Climbing into his tiny car, Stuart hits the open road, sure he's heading in the right direction, only to find himself in for a big surprise. Filled with warmth, wit, and wonder, Stuart Little is a timeless tale that speaks to the heroic spirit in all of us, no matter what our size.

Stuart Little is superb!

Julie Harris absolutely makes this book! The tale is whimsical, entertaining and fun, and nothing at all like the movie- it is far superior.

This is a great listen for kids and is entertaining enough for adults to listen either alone or along with the family.

By far my favorite audible find so far, in large part because of the captivating reader.

Great narration of a classic!

Julie Harris does a fantastic narration. This is a favorite for our whole family on long car trips. Our kids like listening to this story better than watching DVDs! Highly recommended.

Delightful, Charming, Philosophical, PERFECT!

Stuart Little is a perfect book: delightful, charming, funny, philosophical, unpredictable, wistful, and finally mysterious. It is so short and so perfect!

And Julie Harris, the accomplished American actress of stage and cinema, has a perfectly savory voice and clever and caring manner for her reading of the book (which was done in 1965 when she was forty, apparently), infusing it with appealing wit and emotion and poetry in all the right places. Hearing her read (no, mumble) the lines of a dental patient with his mouth stuffed with several wads of gauze, or the comical and finally beautiful exchanges between substitute teacher Stuart and his pupils, or the exciting sailboat race, or any of the other wonderful scenes, is a pure pleasure.

Highly recommended to everyone!

A classic tale beautifully told

What a joy to share this classic story with my boys - and to hear Julie Harris' elegant, gentle and wonderful reading of it! I vividly recall the way I felt discovering Stuart as an early reader. This narration brought that back.

Kept us all thoroughly entertained

We loved this version of Stuart Little. Julie Harris has a wonderful voice and of course the story is timeless. My 8 year-old cackled through the whole story.

Brings back memories

I recall in 1960 something a family friend read this to all my other three siblings and myself. We really were taken to another world and we needed this due to having less than ideal parental circumstances. Our parents cared a great deal about pawning off their children onto others but there was no love lost as long as we could hear our friend reading "Stuart little", she also read secret garden which was equally as fascinating. The next thing we knew we were all reading to our own kids and bringing back those great old memories.

Reader

My 7 year old loved this reader and says she makes her feel very "homey." A lot of audio books give her a bad feeling so this was a big deal.

Entertaining

What made the experience of listening to Stuart Little the most enjoyable?

My 7 year old daughter enjoys audio books. This is one that she can listen to when her friends are here. When she has a sleep over and they wont stop giggling - I can turn this on and they will listen and be quiet. I dont have to worry about the content - its appropriate and they enjoy it. She has listened to it many times.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Stuart.

Have you listened to any of Julie Harris’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This is our first experience with Julie Harris. She did a fine job.

Any additional comments?

I enjoyed this book as much as my daughter.

Timeless story

If you could sum up Stuart Little in three words, what would they be?

Gentle, compelling, timeless

What does Julie Harris bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

Clearly read at just the right pace to be understood by a child. A gentle read.

Any additional comments?

Excellent way to introduce a child to the pleasure of audio books. Each chapter stands on its own and captures the attention of the young listener. I enjoyed this book in my youth and found my grandson equally entertained.
