    1. This is a much longer story than the other "belling the cat" story I've read: But Who Will Bell the Cats?. This is quite a bit longer than your typical picture book. It is perfect for children who are ready for chapter books but still want a picture book. I had to laugh at the mice meeting with the leader Portman, a kitchen mouse who "was silver, going gray, and knew what there was to know, from cellar to attic." I've been in meetings with a Portman-type before and Mary Stolz got him just right! [...]

    2. Read the full review here: newberyandbeyond/newbery-rThis book is all about the illustrations. The well-known story about mice attempting to put a bell on the house cat turns into a wild adventure when two small mice get taken away on a ship and eventually meet a tiger. It’s a short, cute, funny story that younger kids will love.

    3. This was a sweet tale of two timid mice on a quest. I enjoyed it and will recommend it to second and third graders.Thinking of this book in terms of the Newbery Honor that it was awarded (or technically retroactively awarded, since before 1971 they were "runners up") forces me to remind myself that being distinguished can be viewed in multiple ways, and that I need to examine my biases. One of which, apparently, is that, like many people, I tend to assign more weight to longer books which have t [...]

    4. 3rd- 4th This is a story about two very small hero on a grand mission. With there mission being to place a large collar with a bell around the house cats neck. They want to be warned of his presence. This cat is always after the two mice. They were successful getting the collar on to the cat but the collar was not on his neck but his tail. All the other mice with in the house did not believe such a task could be done. The other friends were in disbelief with the two mice exclaimed they completed [...]

    5. A lovely picture book version of a longer story. This was the first read aloud I did with my 3.5 yo over multiple days and he was enthralled. Begged to finish it in one sitting! The language and story are delightful.

    6. This is a clever take on the classic story of mice trying to put a bell on a cat. Our two heroes are given the task, but since they are the smallest mice in the house, their chances aren't very good. However, they may manage to win the day in the end.lockheed40books

    7. I thought this was very cute. the library had it shelved in the young children section, and I think that's appropriate, although it would be a good book I think up through age 9 for the content.

    8. This book was a good book about the journey of twin mice who bell and tiger. I would recommend this book to others however it just wasn't as enjoyable to read as I thought it would be.

    9. We have an old copy with lovely black & white block print-ish illustrations. Enjoyable read aloud with a sarcastic air, "who cares about Portman?" πŸ…πŸΎπŸ­
