Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
New illustrations by Pierre Pratt dress up the Newbery Honor book Belling the Tiger by Mary Stolz. The witty story stars two mice chosen to "bell" (place a bell collar on) a neighborhood cat. The mice accidentally get shipped overseas, but manage to both bell and befriend a tiger. The saturated colors in Pratt's full-bleed paintings capture both the austere atmosphere of the mice's home base and the lush setting of the tiger's jungle. (Aug.) Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
This 1961 Newberry honor book has been reissued with new artwork by Pierre Pratt. As delightful as ever is the story of Bob and Ozzie, the two smallest mice in their seaside town who get tasked with the largest task: to hang a belled collar around the house cat's neck so that they will be forewarned of his approach. Fleeing the cat, the heroic duo wind up aboard a ship destined for far-off places. The cat that Bob and Ozzie meet in a faraway jungle surpasses anything the pair could have dreamed of. When they return home, their newfound confidence allows them to be treated with dignity and respect, no longer doomed to live the life of cellar mice. Wonderful colorful illustrations bring this classic story to life, making it a pleasure to read for adults and children alike. 2004 (orig. 1961), Running Press Kids, Ages 5 to 8.
—Christopher Moning
School Library Journal
K-Gr 4-A newly illustrated version of Stolz's charming book (HarperCollins, 1961; o.p.) about two feisty brothers whose cowardice masks their true bravery. After the mice in a seaside village call a meeting about their cat problem, Bob and Ozzie, the two smallest attendees, are sent on a mission to get a bell and put it on the menacing feline. However, fate steps in, and the winsome siblings are soon off to sea on a wild adventure in which they meet up with a tiger, play a trick on an elephant, and then head for home, where events turn out quite nicely for them in the end. This story has timeless appeal with the unlikely heroes going on a quest, standing up to something fearful, and coming back changed. Reminiscent of Henri Rousseau's surreal animal paintings, Pratt's rich artwork offers a charming alternative to Beni Montresor's delightful pen-and-ink illustrations in the previous edition. However, this new offering's format is problematic. The original book was 64 pages long and has been reduced to a 32-page picture book, making the font size too small for the intended readers. Although a note on the copyright page promises that the text has not been altered, the names of the protagonists have been changed. While the newer title has some appeal, the older one is easier to read.-Bina Williams, Bridgeport Public Library, CT Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
