Frederick, by Leo Lionni

“Generations of children have loved the picture book, Frederick, since it was first published in 1967. It’s the simple tale of a family of field mice who work very hard all through Summer and Autumn getting ready for the long hard winter. It’s hard work, but as long as they all pull their weight they should be ready. However, one field mouse, Frederick, doesn’t seem to be doing any work.”

“The other mice think he’s lazy and daydreaming his days away. But when winter arrives, it’s Frederick who has a special surprise in store that helps them survive until spring dawns again.”
