Summary: Mrs. Frisby, a widowed mouse with four small children, must move her family to their summer quarters immediately, or face almost certain death. But her youngest son, Timothy, lies ill with pneumonia and must not be moved. Fortunately, she encounters the rats of NIMH, an extraordinary breed of highly intelligent creatures, who come up with a brilliant solution to her dilemma. (GoodReads.com)
Review: I enjoy books with animals as the main characters. This book has many elements that I love: action, adventure, suspense and a touch of mystery of what if... I would recommend this book for those who like books that are vivid... It's almost like watching a movie in your head as you read. Read the book first and then compare it to the animation version of the novel called the "Secret on Nimh."
Give it a try.
