Right now we need The Rescuers.

A gift for our granddaughter Anna. And a gift for all of you.

A gift for our granddaughter Anna. And a gift for all of you.

More than fifty years ago, I got this children’s book. It was a book with sentences and paragraphs and some illustrations. Magical. Three mice who embark on a mission to free a Norwegian poet being held prisoner by some unnamed regime.

A swashbuckling seafaring mouse named Nils. An upright low profile mouse named Bernard. And a femme fatale white mouse named Bianca.

Three mouse-keteers.

Three mouse-keteers.

Here’s a solid gold tip. If you have a daughter or granddaughter aged ten or under, get this book. She will love it. You will love it because you will read it before you wrap it up as a present. It is an honest-to-goodness book with a great story and lovely drawings. Then, if you’re really smart, you’ll do what we are doing, augment the book gift with a silver Bianca necklace.
