There’s something very strange about the rats living under the rosebush at the Fitzgibbon farm. But Mrs. Frisby, a widowed mouse with a sick child, is in dire straits and must turn to these exceptional creatures for assistance. The rats come up with a brilliant solution to her dilemma and, after many adventures, she is able to help them, too!
