about

Some extraordinary rats come to the aid of a mouse family in this Newbery Medal Award-winning classic by notable children's author Robert C. O'Brien.

Mrs. Frisby, a widowed mouse with four small children, is faced with a terrible problem. She must move her family to their summer quarters immediately, or face almost certain death. But her youngest son, Timothy, lies ill with pneumonia and must not be moved. Fortunately, she encounters the rats of NIMH, an extraordinary breed of highly intelligent creatures, who come up with a brilliant solution to her dilemma. And Mrs. Frisby in turn renders them a great service.

From Our Editors

The mysterious rats that live deep beneath the earth under the rose bush in the garden are Mrs. Frisby's only hope. Her youngest, Timothy, is ill and the ploughing will shortly begin - which means a moving day for the mouse family. Taking the elevator down the electrically lit tunnels and strange chambers of the colony, Mrs. Frisby must consult with the oldest, wisest rat of them all: Nicodemus. So begins a magical adventure, with echoes of Watership Down, of the marvellous laboratory rats with their super-intelligence and the quest to help one little mouse escape certain death. Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH garnered the late Robert C. O'Brien a 1972 Newbery Medal. Made into the gorgeous animated feature film in 1982, this contemporary classic comes to a new generation with a freshly designed cover and the original title.
