1 thought on “The Rescuers”

  1. For reasons too complicated to explain, Not recently received a French DVD of The Rescuers as a birthday present. She was somewhat nonplussed, and I tried to explain that it was a treat for anyone who had an ounce of romance in their soul, worth it just for the flying scene with "Tomorrow is Another Day". I told her that the lovely Miss Bianca - surely the sexiest mouse in movie history - was voiced by the late, great Eva Gabor, and showed her pictures. But Not was still very sceptical.This morn [...]

  2. "Maybe we ARE small, but if we small ones work together, who knows what will happen?" —Ellie Mae, "The Rescuers" This book will suffer in comparison to the movie, which I see as one of the most sensitive, wonderful creations in Disney history. Nonetheless, this very short adaptation of the movie is good for what it is. I enjoyed it much more than most similar synopsis picture books.

  3. My love of reading started when i was young, and it gives me immense pleasure to provide books to Spread the Word Nevada, an organization that passes them on to children in the community. They are a terrific organization supporting an important cause. If your local I encourage you to check them out. For those living further a field, look in your own community, their may already be a similar program in place. And if not, you can always help start one.spreadthewordnevada/Myself, I go out on the we [...]

  4. The "Rescuers" is an entertaining and adventurous story about two mice that must go on an adventure to save a young girl named Penny from her captors, Medusa and Snoops. Based off the movie, the book's length is perfect for young readers with the addition of captivating illustrations that aid in the telling of the story. The portrayal of good versus evil is also very apparent, as each character is clearly represented and grouped into one category or the other. Overall, this short read's simple v [...]

  5. This is a fair adaptation of the Disney movie, so if you enjoyed the film, then you will certainly like this. The illustrations are faithfully rendered and the color beautifully matches my memory of The Rescuers. Bernard and Bianca bravely set forth to rescue the orphan Penny, and children will cheer as they overcome obstacles and save the day. Recommended.

  6. My parents are divorced, and as a child we’d spend a lot of time at my grandparents. They were and are big readers, who encouraged us to do the same. This was one of the many books they had for us as kids, and I won’t tell you it’s a favorite, but its memorable after nearly 20 years. Worth reading to your kids!

  7. This is a great book that my grandma used to read to me when I was younger. I was very young when I was introduced to Bernard and Beonca(main characters), but I will never forget them. This book allows the reader to use different voices to make for a great read for a young child. The book is adventurous and attention grasping and has a great movie to go along with it.

  8. Disney is not my favorite anymore just seems to be a recap of a movie, when it comes to the books. They tend to leave out the character building parts of the movie and focus on storyline only, which is becoming annoying to me. What is the point of a story without some kind of a message? The message in this one is mice can help people.

  9. This was one of my favorites when I was little. The book also goes along with the Walt Disney movie of the same name. This could help children visualize more about the characters while reading the book.

  10. Napínavý příběh dvou myších detektivů Bernarda a Bianky, kteří zachraňují holčičku z rukou chamtivé ženy.

  11. Eh, I love mice! This was an awesome book when I was little. Kinda less satisfying as an adult, but the mice are cute!

  12. The Rescuers was pretty exciting for a Disney movie. This book, however, is not at all exciting, not even for a Disney book.

  13. A book that doesn't do the film justice17 Nov 2013 This is the book adaptation of the film of the same name (no doubt released around the same time) however I don't remember it – at all. As is typical of Disney films we have a couple of animals that go off and help a little girl that has somehow been imprisoned by a mean and nasty woman and her stupid male sidekick (why are the males always stupid when you have an evil woman, and come to think of it, why are all the villains women – the vill [...]

  14. One my favourite stories growing up, which I enjoyed just as much the 2nd time round with my own loved ones.
