Abelard Hassam di Chirico Flint - Abel, for short - is a rich and silly mouse. He spends most of his days just having fun, going to picnics with his wife, playing croquet with friends, and dancing at parties. Unlike most other mice, Abel has never had to work for anything. All that changes one blustery fall day when his wife's scarf flutters away in a gust of wind. Abel races off to rescue it and is swept away in a rainstorm. When the storm is over, Abel finds himself washed up a deserted island. To survive the winter, this pampered mouse will have to work hard at building a home and gathering food. Can he figure out a way to get off the island and return home - or is he stuck living by himself for the rest of his days? With warmth and wide-eyed enthusiasm, this Newbery Honor Book will delight young listeners with an insightful tale of a mouse rising to the greatest challenge of his life.

    " This story was great - like Robinson Crusoe, only Abel is a mouse and much, much, much more endearing and interesting than Crusoe. He's a lot less whiny, too. "

    " Abel is stranded on an island for a year. In that time he learns how to survive on his own. More philosophically, he learns that living among others is a privilege. One must do his or her share to add to the world. "
