Not In Stock - Special Order (Subject to Availability)
A collection of over three hundred quotations from the best-loved children's books of all time, What the Dormouse Said brings together the wit and wisdom of such classics as Charlotte's Web, Peter Pan, Eloise, Goodnight Moon, and many others. Organized around twenty-one topics-courage and faith, love and friendship-these lines remind weary adults not to lose sight of the values and virtues they learned as kids-to recognize the importance of being yourself, to respect nature, to live adventurously, and to be defiant when it counts.
With witty illustrations by Pierre Le-Tan, here is a book for new parents, grandparents, teachers and educators, and nostalgic baby boomers--a book that recaptures for all of us the joy of reading for the first time.
