Summary
Alexander, a real mouse, wants to be a toy mouse like his friend Willy until he discovers Willy is to be thrown away. An ALA Notable Children's Book & Caldecott Honor Book.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: The beloved Caldecott Honor Book and Christopher Award winner about two unlikely friends who see each other for who they are inside.

Everyone loves Willy the wind-up mouse, while Alexander, the real mouse, is chased away with brooms and imperiled by mousetraps. Wouldn't it be wonderful to be loved and cuddled, thinks Alexander, and he wishes he could be a wind-up mouse, too. In this gentle fable about a real mouse and a mechanical one, Leo Lionni explores the magic of friendship.

Originally published in 1969, the Caldecott Honor-winning Alexander and the Wind-Up Mouse is sure to enchant a whole new generation of readers.

"A delicate fantasy about friendship, illustrated with bold, sumptuous collages."--The New York Times
