Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

While the other field mice work to gather grain and nuts for winter, Frederick sits on a sunny rock by himself. “I gather sun rays for the cold dark winter days,” he tells them. Another day he gathers “colors,” and then “words.” And when the food runs out, it is Frederick, the dreamer and poet, whose endless store of supplies warms the hearts of his fellow mice, and feeds their spirits during the darkest winter days. Frederick’s story will warm readers as well in this Caldecott Honor winning fable.

About the Author

i heart good stories, October 21, 2008 (view all comments by i heart good stories)
This is the best parable of the call of the artist. It is beautiful in its simple elegance. The illustrations are sublime. I refer to this lovely story all the time in all sorts of contexts with both children and adults. It is one of those stories that lives with you once you have met and read it!
