Mary Stoltz's work, ranging from picture books to young adult novels, has been published in nearly thirty languages. She lives in Longboat Key, Florida.From School Library Journal:
Kindergarten-Grade 4–A newly illustrated version of Stolz's charming book (HarperCollins, 1961; o.p.) about two feisty brothers whose cowardice masks their true bravery. After the mice in a seaside village call a meeting about their cat problem, Bob and Ozzie, the two smallest attendees, are sent on a mission to get a bell and put it on the menacing feline. However, fate steps in, and the winsome siblings are soon off to sea on a wild adventure in which they meet up with a tiger, play a trick on an elephant, and then head for home, where events turn out quite nicely for them in the end. This story has timeless appeal with the unlikely heroes going on a quest, standing up to something fearful, and coming back changed. Reminiscent of Henri Rousseau's surreal animal paintings, Pratt's rich artwork offers a charming alternative to Beni Montresor's delightful pen-and-ink illustrations in the previous edition. However, this new offering's format is problematic. The original book was 64 pages long and has been reduced to a 32-page picture book, making the font size too small for the intended readers. Although a note on the copyright page promises that the text has not been altered, the names of the protagonists have been changed. While the newer title has some appeal, the older one is easier to read.–Bina Williams, Bridgeport Public Library, CT
