By Robert C. O'Brien (4)

Show/Hide Info

Critically acclaimed, Robert C. O’Brien’s Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH is a beloved children’s classic, and the deserved winner of the Newbery Medal. Mrs. Frisby is the loyal, widowed mother of four little field mice, and lives in Mr. Fitzgibbon’s vegetable garden. It is nearly plowing time, and therefore the family must ready to move from their winter home to the brook’s edge, where they spend the summer months. However, Mrs. Frisby’s young son Timothy is desperately ill and cannot make the cold, long journey to the brook, leaving the Frisbys in a dire predicament. Seeking a way to save her son, Mrs. Frisby ventures farther into the outside world than she ever has before, meeting the rats of Nimh, a mysterious society of laboratory rats who live with functioning electricity, and are keenly intelligent. Discovering her late husband was acquainted with the rats, and was part of same experiment that altered them, she ventures farther into this newfound existence, setting out on a dangerous mission to gain the rats’ help. O’Brien’s tale is ridden with distinct animal characters, all of whom are given fascinating backgrounds, but it is the courageous Mrs. Frisby who steals the show, and her motherly devotion will touch readers’ hearts.
