Additional Notes

From The Publisher*Leo Lionni's Caldecott Honor–winning story about the magic of friendship is now available as a Step 3 Step into Reading book-perfect for children who are ready to read on their own.
 
Everyone loves Willy the wind-up mouse, while Alexander the real mouse is chased away with brooms and mousetraps. Wouldn't it be wonderful to be loved and cuddled? thinks Alexander, who wishes he could be a wind-up mouse, too. Lionni's enduringly popular story makes a winning addition to the Step into Reading line, letting young children enjoy this classic all by themselves.
Review Quote*"A delicate fantasy about friendship, illustrated with bold, sumptuous collages." -The New York Times

"Eye-catching, boldly colored collages illustrate this classic 'grass is always greener' story in which a live mouse is envious of his mechanical counterpart." -Booklist
Biographical NoteLEO LIONNI wrote and illustrated more than 40 picture books, including four Caldecott Honor books: Inch by Inch, Swimmy, Frederick, and Alexander and the Wind-Up Mouse. He died in 1999 at the age of 89.
