This children's book is the sequel to Mrs Frisby and the Rats of NIMH by Robert C. O'Brien. The story is as follows: city rats, field mice and the Rats of NIMH join forces to fight the imminent flood (man made) that threatens their home in Thorn Valley. To achieve this they must gather their supernatural knowledge and wits to battle against the humans and their plan of destruction.
I found this book tedious, the characters annoying, and the plot unoriginal and ludicrous. The action and adventure is not in the least thrilling, and the themes and their impact extremely weak. I cannot recommend this book.
