<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>
