    "A great classic brought to life on audio"

    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.

    "FANTASTIC STORY, FUN AND ENTERTAINING."
    If you could sum up Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH in three words, what would they be?

    I loved this book almost as much as Watership Down. Well written and excellent performance.

    "Great kid's book and narration!"

    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!

    "Love…Love…Love!"

    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!

    Story
    "Mrs. Frisby stands the test of time"
    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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.
