Then, just when they're settling into the pace-SWOOOOOOOSH! Hubert is carried off on an untended solo flight in Alf's homemade glider. Wonderfully human animal characters, delightfully appointed Victorian settings, black-and-white comic strip format: an odd combination of elements, but Stevenson makes them seem to belong together in this charming depiction of a well-dressed little mouse's vacation with his parents at the leisurely Sea View Hotel.

I'm happy to have found this book to give as a gift. The characters are all animals, with watercolor illustrations by Stevenson. It is the tale of a young boy who embarks with his parents by train from New York for summer vaccation. Expecting days of baseball and swimming, his expectations are disappointed until he finds an unlikely friend and a whole new perspective. The way the story is told makes me wonder if there is a degree of autobiography in it.

Set at the turn of the 19 th century, this story is a visual delight with a light-hearted message for kids and adults alike. Little mouse Hubert and his rather straight-laced parents vacation at a seaside resort (a beautifully pictured Victorian). Hubert discovers that he's the only kid there, and that the other animal guests are not very interested in him.
Then, Hubert has the good fortune (and the curiosity) to meet Alf, the hotel groundskeeper. He shows Hubert that "there's plenty to do around here...but you have to keep your eyes peeled." Together they enjoys some unexpected joys of nature, and Hubert takes a thrilling ride in Alf's homemade glider.
My five-year-old and I enjoyed this very much. The pictures of late 19th century houses and trains are richly detailed, from the candelabras to the stenciled ceilings.
Stevenson effectively conveys how joy can be found in seemingly boring places. It takes some curiosity,and sometimes some adult guidance to discover that joy. A fun book for kids and adults: Highly recommended!

This is the book that grows on you, as a parent. My older child received it as a gift when she was around 4. I didn't see much to it, but my daughter asked to read it over and over again. By the hundredth reading I came to see that to a four year old Hubert's entertainments, while rather ordinary activities, are quite engrossing. The message that friends come in all ages and where you least expect them is quite reassuring. When my second child became addicted to the book I realized it was a real winner. Both my kids like to read it night after night -- both around the age of four. Hubert's activities are interesting to them, and the beach hotel setting is just a little bit exotic. I suppose fuddy-duddy parent characters are to be expected. Maybe to the kids they don't look any more fuddy-duddy than their own! The illustrations are wonderful, and kids like the cartoon aspect of the text.
