Book Review: Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH

Summary: Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH is the story of a widowed field mouse named Mrs. Frisby, whose youngest son, Timothy, has fallen ill. This is a children's book, but adults will enjoy giving it a read now and then. 

Thoughts: The summary only sums up about half of the book as the other half is devoted to the story of the rats. I've always been a fan of books like this, from Redwall to Watership Down, and this one impressed me because I was expecting a much more childish book. While written for children, the classic feel doesn't deter older readers and the characters are very enjoyable! For those of you who remember the movie, it has its similarities and difference, the biggest one can be found at the end of both and I actually prefer the movie's version due to certain spoilers that I won't mention! 

Content: There was, actually a D**** once or twice but I was expecting that due to the movie. Aside from that this book is clean, though I know some Christian parents might have a problem with the 'millions of years ago' that was briefly mentioned, so just be aware that, while brief, it was mentioned.
