Mrs Frisby has a problem. Her son Timothy is diagnosed with pneumonia. He must stay in bed for at least three weeks and moving day is drawing closer! She meets a young crow named Jeremy who introduces her to an owl who could help her with her problems. He recognises her surname and sends her to the Rats. The next day she journeys to the Rosebush where they live. The Rats are super intelligent animals who have escaped from the Laborotory of Nimh. She finds out that her husband (Mr Jonathan Frisby) was a part of the escape. Together with their sophisticated methods, the Rats move her house to a safe place where the tractor won't plough. She can now stay in her home for as long as she wants - until Timothy is well. The laborotory finds the Rats and they gas the Rosebush. By this time the Rats were already settling in their new home.

When my family got our first VCR, the first 2 movies we rented were the Dark Crystal and the Secret of NIMH. I thought it was a great movie, but years later I got the book, Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH, for my younger brother. I read it to him when he was about 6, and I discovered that the book is far superior to the movie, having superb background and description, and presenting the dilemmas in real and difficult terms, instead of the simplistic magic and clear-cut good and evil of the movie. I recommend this book as an intriguing children's adventure story, and worthwhile addition to any library of children's literature.

When Mrs. Frisby is in the house she overhears the conversation of the family. They talk about the people from NIMH coming to poison the rats. She tells the rats and they make a plan to save themselves and not look like they were from NIMH.
This was the BEST book I have ever read. I would give it a 10 out of 10. The way the author describes the scene and the characters is oustanding.

I quite enjoyed this book. It was exciting humourous, adventurous and had some nail biting momments. I enjoyed it because it kept me in suspense. It's about a couragous mouse called Mrs Frisbey who has to save her son from the all evil plougher. She goes to the wise owl which sends her to the super intelligent rats. She learns the secret past of her late husband, and how he knew about the super natural rats. This leads her to an unforgettable adventure. I recormend this book to young children at ages about 9 to 12.

I really liked this book. The only thing that ruined it for me was reading it in school. This book had interesting characters, an unusual way of telling a story, and a good plot. Doing it in school gave me time to analyze the book. The characters didn't seem at all like mice and rats, they took on human qualities. This was a really super book!
