This delightfully imaginative tale is always a popular favorite among children. Mrs. Frisby, a field mouse who lives in a garden, must move her family before the farmer begins plowing. Will the rats of NIMH - a group of highly intelligent laboratory rats - help her find a solution to her dilemma?

I spend a lot of time with my daughter listening to audio books. This is one of our favorites. The narrator reads well with no strange pronunciations or annoying inflections. I love it when the narrator is so good that the listening experience flows without any glitches from something annoying that the listener has to consciously ignore.
The story is a classic from my childhood and it still grasps interest of young readers today.
If you're tempted at all you should get it. In my opinion you won't be sorry.
I loved the book as a kid, and it was nice to listen to it again as an adult. For me, the narrator makes all of the difference for an audiobook, and Barbara did a great job with this book!
Yes, The audio edition is very exciting!!!
You feel the emotions from the mice and rats' perspective.
Our favorite scene was the move of the house.
It is a wonderful story of animals working together.
This audible books bring me back to my childhood days. It's read with such passion and love. I could actually visualize the whole book as I listened. This being a change from the days when I read it aloud to my children. However now, I could listen over and over again! Highly recommend this book and narrator to anyone old or young!
I loved this book almost as much as Watership Down. Well written and excellent performance.
The reader's voice had an ebbing quality which became annoying after a while. She started each sentence loud and became quieter as the sentence went along, then the next sentence started out loud again. You could barely hear her at the end of a longer sentence. She did have a pleasant voice.
This is a great children's book. My kids and I listened to it over the course of several car trips and we thoroughly enjoyed it.
