Rachel Yu has retold the tale with the characters now being less controversial mice. Obviously it is just as unlikely that five mice will look exactly the same but less people are likely to complain about mice. The classic tale revolves around one of five brothers accidentally killing a boy who accompanied him on his fishing trip as he was able to inhale the sea and the boy ignored his gestures that he couldn't hold it in anymore while collecting fish and other stuff from the seabed. The brother was convicted of murder and sentenced to death. Rachel Yu's version has the mouse brother simply being accused of theft (we never know if he even did it), but again he is sentenced to death, which is probably a bit extreme a penalty for theft but the sentence of death is needed for the story to continue as a parallel storyline version of the original. Yu has given her mice different powers to the original Chinese brothers as well to combat her more child friendly means of execution, with the exception of drowning which was used in the original version. The other three original's death sentences were being set on fire, smothered and beheaded. Yu's mousetrap killing I guess is the beheading one but children being read this to probably are more familiar with cartoon mice getting their necks squashed with their tongue sticking out than their necks broken or decapitated by the bar when these are used in real life. If they are even used with the more humane sort of mouse traps manufactured today anyway. For the other two Yu goes with poison and being eaten by a cat in a nice sort of homage to many a B grade movie gigantic creature sacrifice scene.

The illustrations are also well drawn, are very colourful and high resolution on Kindle screens.

4.0 out of 5 stars Clever Story! September 7, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've bought several books by this author, and enjoy reading all of them with my son, age 4. The colorful and detailed pictures are fun for my son to see when reading on the Kindle app for my tablet. The story is clever and enjoyable. Like her other books, the teacher in me is very pleased with the good vocabulary used. Her stories are simple, but not babyish.

I only wish the book would be formatted in a better way for the Kindle. I would like to see text with each picture so my son can enjoy the pictures while hearing the story. Some pages are like this, some are not.
