True love, undying loyalty, and a daring rescue fill the pages of Tor Seidler's beloved tale, rightfully compared to Charlotte's Web by The New York Times.
Bagley isn't your typical trouble-making weasel--and he doesn't mind if his non-weaselly ways prompt teasing from his friends. For while other young weasels dance under the pines, Bagley thinks about Bridget, the mesmerizing fish who lives in a pond down the brook from his den. As the two unlikely friends grow closer, Bagley realizes that there is big trouble in Bridget's future. Only a true hero can save Bridget from the gruesome fate that awaits her, and this is exactly what Bagley, much to his own surprise, proves himself to be.
Tor Seidler's "engagingly imaginative story" (Kirkus Reviews) has been a treasured favorite since its original publication in 1994, and this edition features refreshed prints of Fred Marcellino's "exceptionally expressive art" (Publishers Weekly).
