Who Will Bell the Cat?

(2) K-3 Illustrated by Christopher Cyr. Kind barn mice nurse a sick cat back to health, but, once recovered, it shows its true nature. Their attempts to attach a belled collar to the cat's neck to warn of its approach fail until a human family moves to the farm and the daughter takes a shine to "kitty." Cyr's use of light draws viewers' eyes toward the thoughtful mice, but when the sharp-clawed menace attacks, expect startled squeals.
