Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH by Robert C. O’Brien

Mrs. Frisby is faced with a terrible challenge as Moving Day comes and her son is too weak and sick to be able to move. Mrs. Frisby seeks help from the Rats of NIMH who are very secretive and do not act kindly to other people or animals. They make an exception for Mrs. Frisby. Her husband had helped the Rats of NIMH escape from labs where they had been studied by scientists. Mr. Frisby died, so this is the only reason that the Rats of NIMH will help her. The Rats of NIMH need to move Mrs. Frisby’s home before it’s too late, but will they be able to?!

I thought this was a very good book, because after reading the first chapter, I was really interested and wanted to see if Mrs. Frisby would find a resolution to the problem. I recommend this book to others, because you get sucked into the book and get very interested, very quickly. I give this book a five star rating, and I think it would be a really great book for others to read (especially people in 5th grade or middle school).
