Stuart Little is a 1945 children's novel widely recognized as a classic in children's literature. Stuart Little was illustrated by the subsequently award-winning artist Garth Williams, also his first work for children. It is a realistic fantasy about a talking mouse, Stuart Little, born to human parents in New York City.Garth Montgomery Williams (1912-1996) was an American artist who came to prominence in the American postwar era as an illustrator of children's books. Many of the books he illustrated have become classics of American children's literature. In Stuart Little, Charlotte's Web, and in the Little House series of books of Laura Ingalls Wilder, Williams's drawings have become inseparable from how we think of those stories. In that respect. Williams's work belongs in the same class as Sir John Tenniel's drawings for Alice in Wonderland, or Ernest Shepard's illustrations for Winnie the Pooh.Hall, A13. Bookseller Inventory # 03140
