Original title is Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH.

This was my very favorite book when I was a child and I still enjoy re-reading it. :)

The entire NIMH series was my FAVORITE when I was a kid!! I loved Justin... I loved the Don Bluth film of The Secret Of NIMH, even though they took their liberties with the story (Mrs. Frisby & The Rats of NIMH was the original book title)... But the rest of the series, Racso/RT Margaret were simply excellent stories as well.

My love of these stories also led into my deep devotion to the Redwall series of books. I still own all three NIMH books somewhere in the boxes of my childhood things, though long ago I had to let my Redwall books go (all together as a series on ebay... oh so sad the life of a broke college student)!

I would reccomend either series with all of my book-loving heart. They are both very special to me.
