Justin and Nicodemus make reference to "the wives," who are certainly shown as capable and industrious, but don't really have a part to play in the book.

Frisby, a widowed mouse with four small children, must move her family to their summer quarters immediately, or face almost certain death.In 2015, MGM, which had released the 1982 film, acquired the rights to the book to adapt it into a live-action/animated film. It was the movie edition which means it was the same story but with pictures from the Don Bluth film adaptation in middle. Do not dismiss this formidable 1971 treatise about misunderstood animals by imagining a cute “Disney” tale. Jonathan and Ages were the only two survivors of a group of eight mice who had been part of the experiments at NIMH and made the rats' escape possible.

I was so into this book, I made my mom take me to the library where I checked it out so I could read ahead to find out what was coming. So I was pleased to find that it holds up well, and I still found it very entertaining (although it seemed a shorter).Unraveling as a story within a story, there are a lot of really interesting characters presented who each provide missing pieces for the “secret” storyline, and/or serve to better contextualize the greater world of sentient animals living on the farm.

When the exterminators fill the rat hole with poisonous gas, eight of the ten rats manage to escape, while the remaining two die in the hole. But they have to move because the field will be plowed soon and if they stay they will all likely die.I read this book as possibly a 10 year old and have never forgotten the rats, in the story-within-the story in the middle, learning to read the instructions inside their cages that led to their *SPOILER ALERT!
