Review:

"E.B. White's third novel for children join the two others ['Stuart Little' and 'Charlotte's Web'] on the shelf of classics....[This] is the most spacious and serene of the three, the one most imbued with the author's sense of the precious instinctual heritage represented by wild nature. Its story most persuasively offers itself to children as a parable of growing, yet does not lack the inimitable tone of the two earlier works--the simplicity that never condescends, the straight and earnest telling that happens upon, rather than veers into comedy....White's concreteness holds the door open for unpleasantness, and also engenders textures of small surprise and delightful rightness."

John Updike, New York Times Book Review, 6/28/70

Review:

"Humor abounds and beauty--of nature, of relationships, of time passing--shines through [in a] story that will captivate children of all ages."
