The Rescuers
The Rescuers | Margery Sharp
Miss Bianca is a white mouse of great beauty and supreme self-confidence, who, courtesy of her excellent young friend, the ambassadors 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, dont 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 theyve got and a good deal more to escape with their own lives, not to mention the poet. Margery Sharps classic tale of pluck, luck, and derring-do is amply and beautifully illustrated by the great Garth Williams.

I loved the vocabulary used. I read it for the litsy children‘s classic read of the month. I love mice stories and horse stories.

This fun tale follows three courageous mice on a mission to rescue a prisoner (though I never understood why that particular prisoner poet needed to be rescued). I liked all three of them especially Miss Bianca. The illustrations are great and I enjoyed the sly sense of humour. Never read the book, never watched the Disney adaptation, I‘m glad I‘ve read it for #ChildrensClassicRead2024

I enjoyed the characters of Miss Bianca, Bernard and Nils very much but my adult mind didn‘t care much for the plot. I wanted to know more about the prisoner and why he was imprisoned. Still glad I read it and after I rewatched the Disney movie, hadn‘t seeing it in ages.

What a delightful read! Love Margery‘s wit(and her curls!)Thanks @TheBookHippie for this great choice to kick off #ChildrensClassicRead2024
My favorite part: When a bored Miss Bianca was in search of something to read: “The Head Jailer was practically illiterate, there was nothing to be borrowed from his shelves save one dog-eared pamphlet entitled Cut Your Own Corns, which Miss Bianca would have sooner died — O ominous phrase! — than look at.”😆

This was such an adorable story! #ChildrensClassicRead2024 I can't believe I haven't read this before or watched the Disney animation. I found it very witty and charming, and just an all-round delight. It's always a good time when animals get existential 😆 Loved the illustrations by Garth Williams.

Mine is an unpopular opinion, I know, but The Rescuers was one of the first Disney films I remember, and it will always be my favorite. The film and this book couldn‘t be more different. I didn‘t care for the writing style and, ugh, the misogyny. I know it‘s in line with the time it was written, but it was more than I can tolerate in my present mental state. That said, I‘m glad I read it. #childrensclassicread2024

First, I want to begin by apologizing to my daughters, for never having read this to them when they were little, they would have loved it!! The concept of the Prison Aid Society of mice is heartwarming. “There is no more wonderful moment in life than when a prison door opens.” My favorite is when Bianca is running for her life and ask Nils “are we passing anything of historic interest?”

The mice props are from my daughter‘s collection.

Nils equates himself:
A story about King Richard involves the quest of his loyal minstrel Blondel to find King Richard who disappeared on his way back from the Holy Land.
Blondel traveled from castle to castle throughout Europe, singing the 1st verse of Richard‘s favorite song until he heard the king answer with the 2nd verse.
Blondel‘s discovery of the king‘s location led to Richard‘s return to England to assume his rightful place as king.👑

#JumpStart2024 #ReadAway2024 #JoyousJanuary

Read for #ChildrensClassicRead2024 I‘d only seen the Disney movie ages ago so it was a delight to read the book even if the story/rescuee differ. Miss Bianca, Bernard & Nils are an excellent team & I enjoyed the humor & the drama as they accomplished their mission. My library Libby only has the 1st e-book in the series but the State Library branch has the print versions & I may be tempted to read on ⬇️

This was a lovely read today, and the illustrations by Garth Williams were perfect. Although I‘m familiar with the movies, I don‘t think I‘ve ever read the book. Bianca, Bernard, and Nils were a wonderful trio of characters, and the cat made the story especially entertaining.

Oh, it was so fun to revisit this. I can't remember when I last read it, but I suspect I appreciate more nuances now. And there's some jokes I never really got, like the “Tybalt Star“ medal for Gallantry in Face of Cats.“

Everyone Welcome!! Let me know if you want to be tagged or untagged!

tpixie So many great reads!! 5mo
tpixie I did not realize the rescuers was a Book also. I‘m going to have to look, but I think Garth Williams maybe was EB White‘s or Charlotte webs illustrator. Misty of Chincoteague and Stormy, Misty‘s Foal, are 2 of my all-time Children‘s Favorites. I‘ve always wanted to go see the pony round up although now I feel a little bit about the ponies! A little trivia Misty was actually inside the White House! (edited) 5mo

rubyslippersreads @tpixie I was lucky enough to visit Chincoteague and Assateague as a kid. I missed Pony Penning Day, though (my parents probably wanted to avoid the issue of bringing home a pony. 😂) 5mo

tpixie @rubyslippersreads thanks! I need to look at Garth Williams to see what he actually illustrated! (edited) 5mo
TheAromaofBooks Oh wow some fabulous picks for next year!! Misty is a life-long favorite, and I also grew up reading Thornton W. Burgess and loving all of his forest adventures. Rebecca and Heidi are also favorites! The rest look quite interesting so I will have to see which ones I can find!! 5mo
TheAromaofBooks @tpixie - Yes, Garth Williams illustrated the Little House books as well as Charlotte's Web, plus many other children's classics like The Cricket of Times Square and The Little Fur Family. His illustrations are so cozy!!! However, Wesley Dennis illustrated the Misty books, as well as most of Marguerite Henry's other books. 😊 5mo

A rough start smoothed out into an enjoyable tale that has almost nothing to do with the movie. Incredibly spoiled Miss Bianca gets swept up in a daring prison rescue, along with Norwegian Nils and Pantry resident Bernard. The first of nine in the series! No idea if I‘ll look for the other seven, but I have the next one. Didn‘t care for the sexist garbage, though. #MGMarch

Bradleygirl oh gosh I remember reading this when I was a kid and somehow I just loved this so much, probably the illustrations helped, but also the Norwegian prisoner that you never find out what he was even accused of and the epic adventure of getting to the castle and then having to make it past all those defenses. brave mice 💜⚔️ 3y

A surprisingly delightful, joyfully illustrated little children‘s classic.

The book is nothing like the Disney film, which I loved as a young child. We had a record that narrated the book, and we‘d listen to it over and over, trying to do all the voices.

DGRachel One of my favorite classic Disney films! 5y
Libby1 @DGRachel - me too! Although a number of years ago I was in a work situation and was in a meeting with someone who looked to me like Medusa; huge green eyes, angry expression, and a hair colour so bright red it could only be from a bottle. I had to try to bottle up my laughter then! 5y

Blueberry @tournevis I would love to see it again. I wonder if Netflix has it.... or maybe my wonderful public library. 😀 5y
tournevis @Blueberry It's slower than I remembered, but it was so good! 5y
tournevis @Blueberry Also, more than a bit xenophobic against the Cadjiens. 5y

Figured I would pick a quick read to change things up a little bit.

#BookMail! I forgot the Disney movies are based on books-they are separate series, but I decided heck #TreatYoself & got them for a good price via Amazon Prime. Currently preparing with Antibiotics & pain meds for a Root Canal 😭😱 due to a Luna Bar that caught my molar unawares & thus broke part of it-Can't drive while on the pain med, so looking forward to a day of audiobooks & maybe some LOTR movies🎧Prayers appreciated for the impending RC🙏🏻

LeahBergen Oooo! Good luck and enjoy the recuperation. ❤️ 7y
Emily92Bibliophile Clarification: So excited!! Emoji is for the book mail and day of audiobooks- not for the flip side of preparation for a Root Canal 😁 7y
