    Off on another grand adventure, this time to rescue Teddy age eight from the salt mines better known as an underground prison This time Miss Bianca and Bernard take two, very old, and unwanted, traveling companions along an old professor and a geologist mouse and a pair of human sized mittens as well, lovingly knitted by the mice of the Ladies Aid Society A fun little story, not as exciting as some of the others, but still unique and full of fun mousey quirks It was fun to see the rela Off on another grand adventure, this time to rescue Teddy age eight from the salt mines better known as an underground prison This time Miss Bianca and Bernard take two, very old, and unwanted, traveling companions along an old professor and a geologist mouse and a pair of human sized mittens as well, lovingly knitted by the mice of the Ladies Aid Society A fun little story, not as exciting as some of the others, but still unique and full of fun mousey quirks It was fun to see the relationship and friendship between Bernard and Bianca growing a bit in this story, and Miss Bianca to finally give Bernard some credit for being as wonderful as our little hero truly is The scetches, as always, were delightful, and I loved the miniture salt constructions left from the prisonors I also enjoyed the creativity, and the usage of some very large words in this seriesvery appreciated by an avid reader such as I that the old books didn t used to dumb words down for little kids

    Thanks to a thoughtful Valentine s Day gift, I ve been revisiting one of my favorite childhood book series the Miss Bianca series by Margery Sharp After seeing the 1977 Disney film based on these books The Rescuers , I got the first 5 books as Christmas and birthday gifts and nearly read the words off the pages While my original copies are probably long gone, my husband found copies of the Dell Yearling paperbacks with the Garth Williams illustrations, and I spent a couple pleasant hours re Thanks to a thoughtful Valentine s Day gift, I ve been revisiting one of my favorite childhood book series the Miss Bianca series by Margery Sharp After seeing the 1977 Disney film based on these books The Rescuers , I got the first 5 books as Christmas and birthday gifts and nearly read the words off the pages While my original copies are probably long gone, my husband found copies of the Dell Yearling paperbacks with the Garth Williams illustrations, and I spent a couple pleasant hours reacquainting myself with the stories This, the fourth book in the series, has our heroes travelling underground in search of Teddy Age Eight, being held in the titular location Bernard and Miss Bianca are saddled with two aged professor mice as part of their mission, and face some narrow escapes, but, with the help of their distant cousins, the bats, assist young Teddy in gaining his freedom There s definitely a formula to these books but the details of each prisoners situation, along with the trials and tribulations the two mice face, manage to keep things somewhat fresh Miss Bianca is easily the star of these novels, with Bernard playing the usually loyal sidekick The supporting cast of characters vary from book to book, but are sufficiently well drawn to fulfill their roles The objects of rescue are a little less well defined and the villains are also somewhat two dimensional The Garth Williams illustrations are utterly charming although I enjoy Erik Blegvad s interpretations of the characters as well.The style of writing is a bit dated, and rather British at times but its gentle humour and generally engaging plotlines make these books good candidates for late elementary readers who enjoy talking animal stories with a bit of adventure thrown in Miss Bianca is a fairly good role model despite being a mouse of class and breeding, she demonstrates intelligence, loyalty and bravery throughout the series I quite enjoyed revisiting this series and may pass them along to my nieces and or nephews at some point

    The first Miss Bianca I ever read, back when I was about Age 8 myself, and still my favourite That was before the ugh Disney film, and when I was given the book as a reward for good behaviour on a very long road trip, I was delighted Garth Williams is uneven as an illustrator see the combination of poorly scribbled vs marvellously detailed drawings in the Little House series , but in this volume he comes into his own I loved the way he made the Professors look rather moth eaten, but so hu The first Miss Bianca I ever read, back when I was about Age 8 myself, and still my favourite That was before the ugh Disney film, and when I was given the book as a reward for good behaviour on a very long road trip, I was delighted Garth Williams is uneven as an illustrator see the combination of poorly scribbled vs marvellously detailed drawings in the Little House series , but in this volume he comes into his own I loved the way he made the Professors look rather moth eaten, but so humourous, and the expressions of dear faithful Bernard.Margery Sharp s magical world of mice who rescue political and other prisoners is always a cracking good read, even in the battered second hand copy I borrowed There were a couple of rather vital pages missing but the story is so well told I was able to fill in the gaps.An excellent tale to read aloud with a child you love I recommend ages 6 8 they may not get some of the plays on words but they will be willing to suspend disbelief and just enjoy the story

    This was one I remembered fondly from childhood, but upon reading it as an adult wasn t nearly as impressed The langauge is very stilted, and the story is, well, kind of boring There are so many books written for children with mice as the central characters and probably better than this.

    I had this book ages ago I think this was my favorite as a child I read several from this series I just loved the idea of the carved salt mansions and structures.

    With the 3rd 4th installments of the Rescuer series, Margery Sharp hit her stride in establishing main characters Miss Bianca Bernard The two professors are an entertaining addition in Miss Bianca in the Salt Mines While the story as a whole was fun, I felt the ending to be a bit of a letdown With the 3rd 4th installments of the Rescuer series, Margery Sharp hit her stride in establishing main characters Miss Bianca Bernard The two professors are an entertaining addition in Miss Bianca in the Salt Mines While the story as a whole was fun, I felt the ending to be a bit of a letdown
