Go check it out. I'll wait.
Honestly, I got all choked up there at the end...
I'd never thought of Stuart Little as such an empowering Gay-positive story, but I'm all excited to read it again. In fact, I'm going to read it aloud, to my child.
I found out about this from Alexis O'Neill, who together with Rick Walton, has been encouraging folks to share their "read-aloud" stories at www.whyreadaloud.wordpress.com The stories readers (and listeners) have left in their comment section are really wonderful - and you can add your own.
And now, to E.B. White's Stuart Little. You can read the first lines along with me, and of course, read them aloud!
Chapter One: In the Drain
When Mrs. Frederick C. Little's second son arrived, everybody noticed that he was not much bigger than a mouse. The truth of the matter was, the baby looked very much like a mouse in every way.
