Stuart Little
NYP2001051005 - 10 MAY 2001- NEW YORK, NEW YORK, USA: Actress Geena Davis takes time off from the filming of Stuart Little 2 to dedicate a bench in New York Central Park to Stuart Little author E.B. White May 10, 2001. rlw/ep/Ezio Petersen UPI

Published in 1945, Stuart Little was E. B. White's first children's story. It is the tale of a young New Yorker named Stuart Little who had the "shy, pleasant manner of a mouse" and in fact, is an actual mouse.

In 2005 a hardbound edition of the book was published to celebrate the sixtieth anniversary of the first edition of Stuart Little.

According to White, the idea for this story came while he was sleeping on the train. The reason for the book's abrupt ending was White's hypochondria. He thought he was going to die soon, so he ended the book in order to get it published before his death. White lived another 40 years after the book's publication.
