About this product
- DescriptionThe classic 1937 tale by award-winning author Marjorie Flack is back in print for the first time in decades! Walter is a lazy mouse. He is so lazy that he always misses school and spends all his time in bed. He is so lazy that eventually his family forgets about him and moves away...without him. Alone and scared, Walter heads out into the world to search for his family. He travels through a dark forest and soon meets a turtle and some frogs. Walter decides to create a new home on Mouse Island. His froggy friends live nearby, and Walter tries to teach them things. With his own island-and friends who depend on him-Walter must learn to take care of himself. There is time to be lazy! But will Walter ever see his family again? First published in 1937 and back in print for the first time in decades with Marjorie Flack's own illustrations, this is a classic tale of adventure and friendship, and the importance of perseverance. An introduction from ted librarian Nancy Pearl is included.
