Mrs Frisby
and the Rats of NIMH
Narrated by Barbara Caruso
Illustrated by Justin Todd
Written by Robert C. O’Brien

"If you've not read this book, DO! This is an incredible children's book that every grownup should know, too. Mrs. Frisby is a mouse, a mother, a widow, and her concern for her children leads her into a great adventure with the Rats of NIMH (National Institutes of Mental Health), who escaped experiments with heightened abilities and rally round Mrs. Frisby to save her family. Wonderful story, excellent writing, and a whole lot of good questions to think about -- like loyalty, and bravery, and experimenting on animals and people, and love, and reason."
