Synopsis by Heather M. Fierst
Based on the classic children's book by William Steig, this animated film is the story of a noble mouse who -- while chasing his wife's scarf during a storm -- is swept away to a deserted island. Abel, who has been coddled and waited on since birth, has to rely on his wits and sorely underused common sense to survive. Featuring the voice of Tim Curry, the video can be used in an author study unit or as a literary supplement to the book. Recommended for ages seven and up.
