Stuart Little

I re-read this classic kids' book, by E.B. White, in about 15 minutes the other night. It was quite fun, but I was surprised by my lack of memory about it. In other words...I totally forgot that it's about the journey, not the destination. I was surprised when it ended long before Stuart ever got to where he was headed.

Other than that, smashing good fun, and probably something James will be ready to hear next year. Yay!

I re-read this recently, too, and though I loved it as a kid, I was disappointed as an adult.

Yeah, me too...but I attributed that to expectations of what I *thought* the story would or should be about, instead of enjoying all the details like I did when I was a kid, so I still think it's a great book for kids.
