Summary, etc.: This first episode in the Deptford Mice trilogy is a tale of horror and valor, good and evil, leavened with humor. In it, Audrey and other brave little mice search for Albert and encounter the sinister Jupiter, who rules the rats through terror. Jupiter's evil presence manifests itself only through the glare of his red eyes peering from the inky blackness of an arched portal. Jarvis gives the story a mystical twist through the mysterious, farseeing bats that live in the attic and give counsel in riddles and through the mousebrass medallion that each mouse receives when coming of age.
