"A splendid achievement." —School Library Journal (Starred Review)
“In Frederick, a mouse who is a poet from the tip of his nose to the end of his tail demonstrates that a seemingly purposeless life is indeed far from that—and that we need not live by bread alone!”—Eric Carle, author of The Very Hungry Caterpillar
“When dreary winter comes, it is Frederick the poet-mouse who warms his friends and cheers them with his words.” —Wilson Library Bulletin
Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Frederick, the poet mouse, stores up something special for the long cold winter. His stories and poems entertain his friends, and the collage art is just right for the story.Times Best Illustrated Book, Caldecott Honor Book.

While other mice are gathering food for the winter, Frederick seems to daydream the summer away. When dreary weather comes, it is Frederick the poet-mouse who warms his friends and cheers them with his words.
