内容紹介

"Grrr!" growl the cats. "Eeek!" squeak the mice. So it goes in the battle between cat and mouse. But when feline crime hits Tokyo, an unlikely hero strikes back. He's not lean and mean. He's round and profound. He's Sumo Mouse! And he's ready to wrestle all wrongdoers. But can this champion of justice squash the sinister schemes of Dr. Claw? Or will evil pin Sumo Mouse to the mat? Caldecott-winning illustrator David Wisniewski has wrestled brightly colored papers into fun, comic book-inspired collages for this action-packed mouse tale.

レビュー

Who is that round, shadowy figure soaring past the moon high above Tokyo? "Is this some lawless lump in leotards? Or a chubby champion of justice?" The boisterously playful language that introduces Sumo Mouse is just what a reader happily expects to find when cracking open the latest offering from David Wisniewski. That happiness becomes inevitably tinged with melancholy, however, when one realizes that this vibrant, fast-moving tale is Wisniewski's last. The Caldecott-winning author-illustrator died in September after a brief illness, at the age of 49.
Like the books that made Wisniewski's reputation? - The Warrior and the Wise Man, The Wave of the Sea-Wolf and Golem - Sumo Mouse features cut-paper illustrations, this time done up in colors as bright and fluorescent as the candy coating on a fresh batch of Skittles. Wisniewski often cited Marvel comic books among his many inspirations, and the influence can be seen in this story's thin plot, which involves a massively muscular mouse who fights with skill and honor and punishes evildoers to the tune of Crash! Bang! and Kaboom! Against vivid backgrounds of orange, purple and red, Tiger Tanaka, the crooked honcho of Tanaka Toys, gets all of Tokyo a?twitter as he abducts mice to stuff inside the squeaky playthings he sells. 'We can't make squeaky toys without, squeaky mice," he explains with a snarl.
As the list of missing mice grows, the twisted toy tycoon teams up with the nefarious mad scientist Doctor Claw in an attempt to bring down Sumo Mouse, the costumed avenger who has been thwarting their plans. They suspect that the mouse behind the mask is Gachinko, a grand champion sumo wrestler, but they are mistaken. In reality, the fearless crime-fighter is Yama, a humble barber who studied to be a sumo wrestler but "never grew in body." After tending to the top knots of the sumos who do battle in a capacious arena, he sneaks away to the basement, where he dons a supersuit that enables him to leap tall buildings and manhandle thugs with effortless flair.
The action scenes between the imposing sumo wrestlers recall the battle scenes in Master Man (200 1), an Aaron Shephard tale that Wisniewski illustrated, and once again evoke those classic Marvel superhero clashes that typically spread across two pages. When the two Master Men squared off above the savannah, their face-off resembled Spiderman going nose-to-nose with the Green Goblin. Ditto for Sumo Mouse's climactic combat with a mechanical colossus built by the dastardly Doctor Claw. Fans of Wisniewski's work know that he wasn't all puns and comedic capers. His books include what might be called serious volumes (Sundiata: Lion King of Mali, the award-winning Golem) and lighter fare, such as Tough Cookie and The Secret Knowledge of Grown-ups, Files I and 2.
The common element in these works is the phenomenal art, all meticulously crafted via the time?ripened method explained in Wisniewski's notes at the end of each book: 'Each detail was cut out with a #11 X-Acto blade. The pieces were assembled with double?stick photo mountings and foam tape. Finally, the completed pieces were photographed, with light and shadow controlled to capture the most dramatic effect."
Even in the rare exceptions, such as this fall's Halloweenies, which casts off the cut paper in favor of pen-and-ink, the author's knack for memorable metaphors is put to enthusiastic use. In that parody of horror movies, pungent phrases stalk across the pages like zombies on the loose: "Lightning poked the stormy sky like jagged fingers looking for change in the dark cushions of an angry couch"; "a smell like cabbage being boiled with gym socks and tuna fish."
There are puns aplenty in Sumo Mouse. The robot nemesis, after opening his belly to reveal a spinning blade, announces that he is the hero's "biggest fan." But the language is fairly spare compared to the large?scale illustration

5つ星のうち 5.0 A really fun book! 2011/7/30
投稿者 Ms CK - (Amazon.com)
Amazonで購入
My 4 year old son loves this book and asked for this book everyday for several weeks. When we had to return it the libary, I had to buy a copy for him and was delighted to see it vailable on Amazon at such a discount! The art work is bright and comic-like, complete with "kapows" and other sound effects, and the text is witty and fun. The story moves along at a fast pace. I love the little ditty on the end papers of the book and it is difficult to read aloud without making up a little tune to go with it. This book will appeal to young children with its unlikely hero, bad guys and, of course, fighting.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Who is that Chubby Champion of Justice..... 2002/11/10
投稿者 Roz Levine - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー
"If Mount Fuji Blows its stack,/If a monster should attack,/Don't just hide inside your house!/Give a call for Sumo Mouse!" There's trouble in Tokyo. Tanaka Toys, maker of squeaky toys, is kidnapping mice. "We can't make squeaky toys without squeaky mice." Who's going to save these innocent victims from the dastardly toy company and its cruel owner Tiger Tanaka? It's Sumo Mouse! He vaults into action, crushes the villains with his superior technique, and then vanishes into the night. But Tanaka Toy's evil Doctor Claw has a plan to thwart this champion of squeaky mice. Will this be the end of Sumo Mouse? Award winning author and illustrator, David Wisniewski, has outdone himself with this clever, playful superhero tale. His witty and humorous text is dramatic and engaging. But it's his bold, bright, and busy collage artwork that really makes this story come alive. Each page is filled with dazzling color, eye-catching detail, marvelous sound effects, and lots of energy, and little ones will revel in all the fun-filled, sumo wrestling action. Perfect for youngsters 4-8, Sumo Mouse is a delightful, manic romp that begs to be read aloud and shared. "If the earth begins to shake,/If the sea makes buildings break,/Don't be filled with great dismay!/Sumo Mouse will save the day!"

5つ星のうち 4.0 Colorful comic fun for youngsters 2003/4/12
投稿者 カスタマー - (Amazon.com)

My son first saw this book at our local library. In the case of children's picture books, he definitely judges a book by its cover! The bright yellow and purple caught his eye and the mouse in a sumo stance with an ear-to-ear grin was instantly appealing!
We read this book every night for the 2 weeks we had it, and loved it so much that I purchased a copy for my son later. It's still a favorite, and it's not just nice to look at, but it has a sweet message to accompany the comic-like feel.
I love reading this book and making up a tune for the theme song on the endpages just as much as my sons enjoy hearing it. I recommend this as a fun book for any home library collection!

One of my son's favorites! Plus, it was always a blast to read it to him. Now we're passing it on to new little ones in our extended family.
5つ星のうち 4.0 The nieces love it 2009/4/8
投稿者 Ulyyf - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー
First, let me say that I got thoroughly sick and tired of this book after reading it six times a day to my two nieces, aged 3.5 and almost-6!

I understand why they love the book, though. It's written in a comic book style with bold, bright artwork, an exciting plot, and lots of LOUD sound words to scream with me! Plus, there's a song on the inside covers. (Alas, you have to make up the tune yourself.)
