Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH

By Robert C. O'Brien

Illustrated by Zena Bernstein






Publisher: Atheneum, New York

Copyright: 1971

Some extraordinary rats come to the aid of a mouse family in this Newbery Medal Award-winning children's literature classic by notable author Robert C. O'Brien.

Mrs. Frisby, a widowed mouse with four small children, is faced with a terrible problem. She 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. And Mrs. Frisby in turn renders them a great service.
