About this item

Description



About the Book



Frederick, the poet mouse, stores up something special for the long cold winter.



Book Synopsis



Leo Lionni's Caldecott Honor-winning story about a little mouse who gathers something unusual for the long winter is turning fifty! Celebrate this beloved favorite, which now includes a special introduction from noted children's book historian Leonard Marcus.

Winter is coming, and all the mice are gathering food . . . except for Frederick. But when the days grow short and the snow begins to fall, it's Frederick's stories that warm the hearts and spirits of his fellow field mice. Winner of a 1967 Caldecott Honor, Frederick has been cherished by generations of readers.

"A splendid achievement." --School Library Journal, starred review

"In Frederick, a mouse who is a poet from the tip of his nose to the end of his tail demonstrates that a seemingly purposeless life is indeed far from that--and that we need not live by bread alone!" --Eric Carle



Review Quotes



"A charming fable, it deserves to take its place once again with other beloved Lionni favorites." --Children's Literature

"The art is gorgeous." --The Horn Book Magazine

I have fond memories of reading this book in elementary school. It is about how a family of mice gathers food for the winter while one mouse appears to be relaxing though he says he’s gathering words and rays of sunshine. When the winter months come, they eat all their food and feel hopeless until Frederick recites a poem and tells them stories which makes them happy and feel hopeful again.
