I still remember this book 35 years after reading it! It's that good. 8 Dec. 2005
By C. Lamont - Published on
Format: Paperback
As you may have gathered from the animated 'Rescuers' series, this is a book about mice, or more specifically about Mouse. Miss Bianca is well-represented by whichever of the Gabors it is that does her voice in the movies; she is just that kind of mouse. When traveling by air, she goes by diplomatic pouch; all her little mouse things are described quite cunningly the same way Stuart Little's are by E.B.White. She is a member on active duty of thhe Rescue Aid Society, which organization rescues children who are prematurely aged from misfortune, not developmentally delayed as in the movies. I remember <u>Miss Bianca in the Salt Mines</u> quite well; a little girl is stuck in a crystalline salt mine where she waits on a Duchess, whose entire china set is made of crystal. As I'm writing this I'm wondering if maybe I missed some double meanings because it sounds so implausible. The Duchess has ratty white hair which our orphan must brush with a crystal-backed brush; the Duchess has a walking stick with a huge crystal (a diamond?) on top of it with which she raps at the orphan. I guess I don't remember it quite as well as I thought. I will say that the entire <U>Miss Bianca</U> series is outstanding!

This is my favorite in the whole series! 19 Aug. 2013
By Melissa D. Aaron - Published on
Format: Paperback
I cannot believe these are out of print. I was such a huge fan when I was little, and this was my favorite. Forget the silly Disney movie.

The story builds a bit from previous Miss Bianca stories, and picks up with the Mouse Prisoner's Aid Society planning to rescue Teddy-Aged-Eight, a prisoner in the salt mines. (The idea that mice would actually *rescue* a prisoner is pretty new, the mice having restricted themselves to simple welfare, cheering-up duties, etc., but Miss Bianca and Co have pulled off three daring rescues by now.) Off go the silver white Miss Bianca, the beloved pet of the Ambassador's son, and her faithful ordinary house mouse friend Bernard. I totally shipped those two back waaaay before I knew that was a thing, and probably even more because it's impossible, etc. This time, they are accompanied by two geriatric mouse Professors, harrumphing and opining on how impossible their mission is.

The description of the salt mines is stunning and I absolutely refuse to spoil it for you, but it is a big surprise.

Plus there are those gorgeous illustrations by Garth Williams, who also did Charlotte's Web and Little House on the Prairie.
