Críticas

This book is about a mouse named Mrs. Frisby. Mrs. Frisby has four children that she takes care of all alone. The problem arises when Mrs. Frisby learns that the farmer is going to start plowing the field before Mrs. Frisby can move her family. Mrs. Frisby has a sick son named Timothy that surely won't make the trip to their summer home. This is where Mrs. Frisby looks for help from the owl. The owl advises her to seek out the "RATS OF NIMH". This is where the plot thickens, and we learn some very interesting things about the Rats of NIMH. Mrs. Frisby and Rats of NIMH is a great fantasy book that will spark the imagination. This is a great book for independent intermediate readers that are ready to start reading on their own.… (mais)

Another fine example of current day reality mirroring fantasy story of 40 years ago. I am not a fan of fantasy but this grabbed me.

I never read this as a kid because I saw a cartoon version that scared the bejeezus out of me. It gave me plow nightmares. But I was ready to face it as an adult.

I love the audio book narrator, Barbara Caruso, who also performed [b:Tuck Everlasting|84981|Tuck Everlasting|Natalie Babbitt|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1171058527s/84981.jpg|1955922]. She's classy.
