We just finished this book as a family. The story is written very clearly, so that the children were able to make pictures of what was happening easily in their heads. They enjoyed the adventures that Stuart went on, but couldn't get over the fact that it was just 'weird' for a human to have a mouse for a baby. They also didn't like the ending much, as it was our first introduction as a family to open-ended stories. They argued a bit afterwards about what have must happened, until I convinced them that could have their own individual ideas of what happens. I think this book might appeal to boys more than girls, as my girls thought some of the things Stuart does are just odd. They also didn't like how often we were introduced to a new character and then have them disappear just as we were starting to really get interested in them.

Over all, a good book. Probably one we will read again when our babies are old enough to listen.
