Praise for La Isla de Abel

“With inimitable style, Steig tells the story of a mouse, Abelard Hassam di Chirico Flint, who gets swept away in a driving rainstorm while rescuing his wife's scarf and winds up stranded on a river island for a year. . .You can't help but give a cheer for Abel and his creator.” —Starred, Booklist
