Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

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.END

About the Author

Robert C. O’Brien was born in Brooklyn, New York. He attended Williams College and graduated from the University of Rochester. He was a writer and editor for Newsweek, National Geographic, and other publications. He lived in New York City and then in Washington, DC, with his wife and four children. Z for Zachariah—which is now a major motion picture starring Margot Robbie, Chris Pine, and Chiwetel Ejiofor—was completed by his wife and daughter, with the help of his notes, after his death in 1973. He is also the author of Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH and The Silver Crown.

Zena Bernstein has a BFA from Syracuse University. She began her career as a book illustrator in New York City. Zena uses a combination of watercolor and acrylics in her work. Through a meticulous process, she carefully places several layers of dots of pure color to suggest subtle tones and shades. She refers to her creative work as a labor of love. Her drawings range from the natural world of mushrooms and insects to the unseen world of fairies and gnomes. She’s perhaps best known for illustrating the children’s book Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH. Zena currently calls Canada home; it’s also the home of the fairies she draws and writes about.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazon Shipping AND Novel Reviews
By Kevin on May 7, 2021
BOOK Review:
Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of Nimh is my favorite book ever. Read it as a child multiple times and decided I wanted to relive The feeling of this book. This book does a great job at describing what true courage and taught me a lot as a child. The artwork is beautiful.

AMAZON Review:
Overall, Amazon did a good job while shipping this. It even came with a gold literary sticker. Had a tiny scratch, but the spine wasn’t even cracked or ripped which can sometimes happened during shipping. I wish it came with bubble wrap though. Worked good for me though!
