Editorial Reviews

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.
Wilson Library Bulletin
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.
From the Publisher
“A charming fable, it deserves to take its place once again with other beloved Lionni favorites.” —Children’s Literature
