Frederick by Leo Lionni 

Leo Lionni’s Caldecott Honor-winning tale of a small mouse who assembles something extraordinary for the forthcoming long winter is commemorating its fiftieth anniversary! Join in the celebration of this treasured classic, now featuring a special introduction penned by esteemed children’s book historian Leonard Marcus.

As winter approaches, mice everywhere scurry to gather provisions, with one notable exception—Frederick. Yet, when daylight wanes, and snowflakes gently descend, it’s Frederick’s narratives that kindle the warmth in the hearts and spirits of his fellow field mice. Honored with a Caldecott Honor in 1967, Frederick has been a source of delight for multiple generations of readers.

“A remarkable accomplishment.” —Starred review from School Library Journal

“In Frederick, a mouse who exudes poetry from the tip of his nose to the tip of his tail illustrates that a life that may appear without purpose is, in truth, far from it—and that sustenance for the soul is as vital as sustenance for the body!” —Eric Carle
