really liked it
bookshelves: kidsstuff, animal, newbery

Single mother Mrs. Frisby seeks help from a secret society of advanced rats in order to move her home and save her family.
For the most part, nicely paced -- especially at the beginning. You really feel the urgency in Mrs. Frisby's situation but the book never feels frantic.
I did feel like some of the momentum of the story was lost when we got the rats' backstory.
