Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Synopsis:

When mouse widow Mrs. Frisby needs advice on how to move her children safely, she consults the rats who live under the rosebush. Not only do they help her, they tell her of their escape from a laboratory where experimentation had made them literate, and of the brave death of her husband. Newbery Medal; ALA Notable Children's Book; "Horn Book" Fanfare Book.

Synopsis:

This 1972 Newberry Medal winner has delighted children and adults alike for decades, both as a million-plus copy bestseller and the popular animated film, The Secrets of NIMH. Now, for the millennium, this perennial favorite has an endearing new cover that will enchant both old fans and those with the pleasure of discovering the book for the first time.
