Normally it's a mixed bag with books that win this award for me, but this time I can say this book deserved the award. It is descriptive enough that you can easily picture where everything is happening without being overly descriptive. 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.

This is probably the book that started me off on my lifelong love of fantasy, together with Watership Down. Domestic felines in reality love the wilderness but these educated fictional rats can no longer abide sewers.To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. But they have to move because the field will be plowed soon and if they stay they will all likely die. Frisby just happens to hear the humans talking about drastic things they were going to do and when they were going to do them. So I was pleased to find that it holds up well, and I still found it very entertaining (although it seemed a shorter). In both cases she is also given a time table and plenty of warning, helping her and the rats to make plans.

A group of rats, led by one named Jenner, rejected this plan and left the nest at some point before Frisby's arrival. Silver argued that Conly's book lays out an example of technological development ending poorly, giving both children reading the book and their parents a lot to think about. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. I got the book again later in life and this has culminated in reading it aloud to my 5 yr old son (*with only a few slight edits/explanations of the more complicated passages). Nicodemus also tells Frisby that the rats have recently decided to abandon their lifestyle of dependence on humans, which some rats regard as theft.It's hard to imagine anyone not being moved by "The Rats of Nimh" and its characters are well-developed and not easily forgotten. 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. One was an introduction to linguistics class, which I'll probably mention when I review The Bird Way. Conly, Jane Leslie 1947-" The Cambridge Guide to Children's Books in English, edited by Victor Watson, Cambridge University Press, 1st edition, 2001.

I must confess I still pick it up every decade or so and read it again, for the sheer pleasure in such a simple but compelling story. The second complaint is that I'm not super happy that we don't know what happened to Justin the Rat either.Between 1989 and 1990, I took some additional college courses in hopes of getting a teaching certificate. In 1982, the animated film The Secret of NIMH was released, directed by Don Bluth; it was his first feature film outside of Walt Disney Animation Studios.

Nicodemus' thoughts about prairie dogs and their potential evolution and the evolution of monkees to men (implied but not explicity stated) is clumsy and well above the heads of most likely readers and seems out of place. Meeting the owl riveted me in the book and 1982 film but nothing awed me more than a widow making discoveries about her husband, Jonathan. The story has aged really well because there isn't anything to date it, like mentioning popular fashion choices of the time, so really anyone can read it.this book was one of my mom's favorites when she was growing up, and i read her same copy when i was growing up, and that is a lovely adorable experience even to a cynical nightmarish grump like me. In 2012 it was ranked number 33 on a list of the top 100 children's novels published by School Library Journal. His daughter did continue the series but as her own writings, which I'm not counting as a true continuation since Mr. O"Brien was an american author, as the story had to me a completely english feel - either way its extremely well-written in both structure and language.
