Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Judy Silverman
Little Hubert Mouse loves his room at this beautiful resort on the beach, and the weather is perfect. But there is no one to play with. When Hubert wanders into the caretaker's cottage, though, everything changes. Alf the Bear shows Hubert plants, shells, and the night sky. Hubert does Alf's chores early one morning, and Alf lets Hubert try out his new glider. On the way home, Hubert suggests the Sea View Hotel as a perfect site for next year's vacation. Stevenson's comic book style story shows there's fun anywhere if you know where to look. First published in 1978, this edition has all new, full color illustrations.
