Format: Paperback
The Five Mouse Brothers is a retelling of the ancient Chinese tale, "The Seven Brothers." That's a very good tale, except it's come under fire recently for portraying racism (nobody could tell the seven Chinese brothers apart). This story is a great way to tell that tale while sidestepping that issue. After all, they're just cute, cuddle mice now!

I'm glad this book was made. The story of the brothers is not unlike a western fairy tale by the brothers Grimm or Hans Christian Anderson. Go ahead and read the other reviews. They'll say it has deathly imagery in it. Perhaps, but that wouldn't stop Little Red Riding Hood's grandma from being eaten by the wolf, or the lumberjack coming to cut open the wolf after it eats. Compared to what we grew up with, this is actually rather tame.

Worth a read.

When I first read the other reviews about the grim imagery I was shocked and wanted to investigate. I read the book before trying to read it to my nephew, it turned out to be rather tame compared to a lot of the stories I remember from growing up. I used to be told tales of dragon slayers, superheroes waging epic battles that result in massive devastation, rabbits that wage war on each other, and so much more. The tale of Five Mouse Brothers is rather on the safe side by comparison.
If you feel it too violent then by all means look this one over, but it is a unique take on the tale of The Seven Brothers. It does help address more complicated issues like death and ideological differences in a safe manner; much like Water Ship Down did with me. I still say this book is worth a read.
