Mice have been attempting to bell cats from time immemorial. In this new try, the responsibility falls on the unlikely small shoulders of Asa and Rambo, the youngest of the mouse brigade. Their first venture into the streets to secure a collar leads to a ship voyage and an encounter with a tiger and an elephant. How they prove themselves and rout the enemy is something they hardly expect their relatives to appreciate. Unfortunately, the reader will find the same problem in this far-fetched, rarely humorous tale.
