There are a few funny parts in this book, but it isn't as good as I expected. I didn't really like any of the characters, and so the whole worry about the cats at the Blessing of the Animals and the sticky traps was not suspenseful, because I didn't care if they got trapped or eaten or not.

Hildegarde the mouse mistress joins Avi's Poppy and Kate DiCamillo's Despereaux as a brave and resourceful leader in this adventure set in a church building and its yard. Architectural terms unfamiliar to children are illustrated in a map at the start of the book. Eric Rohmann's detailed drawings depict the emotions and action in this tale of danger and loyalty.
This would be a gripping read aloud in families and in classrooms.

I was prepared to adore this book, since I am a great admirer of other works by Ms. Lowry. I was disappointed. I would recommend instead Margery Sharp's Miss Bianca books to anyone wanting wonderful stories about bands of anthropomorphic mice. Mistress Hildegarde pales in comparison.
