Reviews

"Frederick-the title character of this warm-hearted, graphically adventurous picture-book treasury-is a mouse. But he's a dreamer as well and could be any thoughtful child you may happen to know." -Parenting Magazine

"[Lionni] transforms each page into a drama of singular beauty, with the audience holding its breath as scene after scene unfolds across the stage. . . . the audience responds in joyous applause. And so will you." -Eric Carle, author of The Very Hungry Caterpillar

"A childhood is simply not complete without the fables of Leo Lionni. . . . Here are four of his best."-San Diego Union-Tribune
