St. Patrick and the Three Brave Mice by Joyce A. Stengel

Book Description

St. Patrick settles in for a much-needed nap after driving the evil snakes from Ireland; however, one clever snake escaped the ring of his miraculous bell. Just in time to witness the sneaky snake stealing the bell from St. Patricks side, Tulla mouse knows something must be done. Realizing she cannot accomplish such an important task on her own, she calls upon the help of her friends, Ryan and Brian. The three mice work quickly to devise a plan to return St. Patricks bell, but they know it will not be easy. Despite the fact these mice are no match for the snake in size and wit, their desire to right a wrong encourages them to work together. After putting their plan into action, the three mice are successful in returning the bell to St. Patrick, and all rejoice when Ireland is finally free of every snake. This endearing story provides a big lesson from characters of a very small size. Playful language accompanied by Celtic-inspired illustrations makes this hopeful tale of three brave mice a great lesson of teamwork and the ability of good to triumph evil.

Reviews

US Kirkus Review » In this original spin-off of a renowned legend, a snake filches the hand bell that St. Patrick had used to drive all the other snakes out of Ireland. Witnessing the deed, the little mouse Tulla follows the snake back to its den, then with help from her two brothers drags the bell back to the sleeping Saint. Up rears the wrathful snake; can Tulla ring the bell before she becomes another victim? The mice look particularly tiny, the snake particularly cunning in Leonhard's shadowy nighttime scenes - and Patrick, awakened, is appropriately awesome in his flowing green and gold-trimmed robes. The briefly told tale doesn't quite match Sheila MacGill-Callahan's The Last Snake in Ireland (1999), illustrated by Will Hillenbrand (an entirely different story), for action or lively language, but it does offer a courageous heroine and a good measure of suspense. (afterword) (Picture book. 6-8) (Kirkus Reviews)
