THE RESCUERS by Margery Sharp
ADVENTURE
Released: Oct. 29, 1959

An absurd and beguiling fantasy in which a trio of mice perform a heroic rescue of a Norwegian poet from the dungeon of an impregnable prison. Here are all the elements of gang plotting, of ingenious execution, of hairbreadth escape, scaled down to the size of the rescuers, and geared to the elements that would provide difficulties, from transportation over the seas to communication in a strange language and to circumventing the horrendous cat of the head jailor. The story is ingenious, almost credible as one reads. There is sly humor and digs at human counterparts. Here is a tale made to order for Walt Disney—but a strange departure for Margery Sharp.

THE RESCUERS by Margery Sharp
Released: Oct. 29, 1959

<p>An ingenious fantasy, an almost credible satire, this story—a departure from the author's usual material—deals with a trio of mice and their rescue of an imprisoned Norwegian poet. Here, on mouse scale, are all the elements of gang plotting, adroit execution, and hairbreadth escape. Here also is a sly humor which digs sharply into the human scheme. Good entertainment, funny, absurd, and thoroughly beguiling.</p> Read full book review >
