Frisby and the Rats of NIMH is a pleasing book, but I find it mildly frustrating; it might have been something more than it is". And there's an interesting snippet at the back as to how the seeds of the story were planted in the author's mind. When this happens, when a mouse runs past my foot while out in the yard, or, Heaven forbid, comes anywhere near the structure of our house, my screams often sound like the sound effects from the famous shower scene from Psycho.

Frisby just happens to hear the humans talking about drastic things they were going to do and when they were going to do them.

Their increased intelligence and strength allowed them to escape from NIMH and migrate to their present location on the farm.Do not dismiss this formidable 1971 treatise about misunderstood animals by imagining a cute “Disney” tale. In both cases she is also given a time table and plenty of warning, helping her and the rats to make plans.
