Product Details

Praise

“A fabulously funny tale of great adventure.” —Anita Silvey, Children’s Book-a-Day Almanac

“In The Rescuers, as in all the best children’s books, the terrific story presents a thrilling view of life: that loyalty, modesty and the iron strength of good manners—especially under pressure!—can result in feats worthy of the greatest heroes.” —Sonja Bolle, Newsday

“Margery Sharp’s mouse-centric 1959 adventure, The Rescuers, has only been out of print for a decade, but it is well worth revisiting. For one thing, it has just been reissued in handsome hardback as part of the New York Review Children’s Collection, with drawings by Garth Williams. For another, this new incarnation provides an excuse to rescue the story for a generation of children who might otherwise know only the animated 1977 Disney movie of the same name. As with most children’s classics, Ms. Sharp’s original work is much funnier and more interestingly textured than the high-fructose movie version.” — Megan Cox Gurdon, The Wall Street Journal 

“Miss Sharp’s delicate and sophisticated humor is good fun for wise children from age 10 to 100.” —Jerome Cushman, Los Angeles Times
