Everyone loves Willy the wind-up mouse, while Alexander the real mouse is chased away with brooms and mousetraps.

In this gentle fable about a real mouse and a mechanical mouse, 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.
