OH MY GOODNESS THIS BOOK IS AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I saw the movie first and the story was very interesting to me, but now that I've read the book, I HATE the movie. The book is SO much better than the movie!!! I loved the characters in this book-Mrs. Frisby was an unlikely heroine, Justin was just dashing, and Nicodemus was great for a head role. The ending was sad, but the story was excellent. My only complaint is that there isn't a sequel! READ THIS! YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!

I enjoyed reading this book as I grew up watching the movie. In some parts it elaborated further on parts that are short or not included in the movie, a better understanding of the story in general. But other parts of the movie ARE NOT in the book, the happen to be some of my favourite parts & I wasn't expecting that, so I'm somewhat disappointed. If you love the movie, I think you should read the book or vs.

This is my favorite book

Mrs. Frisby is a widowed field mouse with four young children wintering in the garden of the farm. One of them, Timothy, has fallen ill and can't be moved. The problem is that the time for the move to summer home has come. If they don't move, they will be killed when the farmer plows his field. Mrs. Frisby turns to the rats that live under the rosebush for help, and she learns that her late husband had a history that she had no idea about. In doing so, Mrs. Frisby finds that she is pulled into something far more dangerous and fantastic that she could ever imagine. This book may be almost forty years old, but it is still one of the best animal fantasy novels for children out there. This is one that a modern child could still enjoy. Go get this.
