Product description


"Both the story and the tale within it are deftly told, fulfilling the first requisite of fantasy by making the impossible believable."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

* "Loyal, resourceful Mrs. Frisby . . . is the engaging heroine of this thoroughly engrossing, thought-provoking fantasy."--School Library Journal, starred review

Product Description

They are not like other rats. They work at night, in secret . . .

Time is running out for Mrs Frisby. She must move her family of mice before the farmer destroys their home. But her youngest son, Timothy, is too ill to survive the move.

Help comes in the unexpected form of a group of mysterious, super-intelligent rats. But the rats are in danger too, and little by little Mrs Frisby discovers their extraordinary past . . .
