Abelard Hassam di Chirico Flint





Here is my mouse Abelard based on the book

Abel's Island by William Steig. This is what Booklist says about the Newberry Award winning book: "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



I have some really great flannel that I would like to make a robe and pants for Abel as well.


I think he needs a linen shirt to go under his vest and I will knit him a sweater too.
