Additional Information

MISS BIANCA IS A WHITE MOUSE OF GREAT BEAUTY and supreme self-confidence, who, courtesy of her excellent young friend, the ambassador’s son, resides luxuriously in a porcelain pagoda painted with violets, primroses, and lilies of the valley. Miss Bianca would seem to be a pampered creature, and not, you would suppose, the mouse to dispatch on an especially challenging and extraordinarily perilous mission. However, it is precisely Miss Bianca that the Prisoners’ Aid Society picks for the job of rescuing a Norwegian poet imprisoned in the legendarily dreadful Black Castle (we all know, don’t we, that mice are the friends of prisoners, tending to their needs in dungeons and oubliettes everywhere). Miss Bianca, after all, is a poet too, and in any case she is due to travel any day now by diplomatic pouch to Norway. There Miss Bianca will be able to enlist one Nils, known to be the bravest mouse in the land, in a desperate and daring endeavor that will take them, along with their trusty companion Bernard, across turbulent seas and over the paws and under the maws of cats into one of the darkest places known to man or mouse. It will take everything they’ve got and a good deal more to escape
with their own lives, not to mention the poet.

Margery Sharp’s classic tale of pluck, luck, and derring-do is amply and beautifully illustrated by the great Garth Williams.

Cute story!! I loved the movies growing up and I wish I had discovered this book years ago. I would recommend this book to anyone who loved Disney's movies or possibly a child in elementary school depending on the reading level 2-5 grade. However, this story is nothing like the movies. There happens to be a series on these characters, so I plan on reading the other books as well. The illustrations are nice too.
I have no reservations about this book. Adventure books are a big hit with my kids, and this one has nothing but positive values throughout. Shouldering responsibilities, relying on manners to keep peace under stressful situations, perseverance, protecting the weak, taking chances in pursuit of a difficult goal, releasing those who are unfairly imprisoned, trust in companions... it's all in there. Plus a great, suspenseful plot and beautiful language. Wow.
This was a favorite of my daughter's, so it was a natural choice for my 9 year old granddaughter this year. I ordered it with several other books, and all were delivered very timely, weeks before Christmas.
