There are 20 titles to collect in the series, listed below, all with exciting new covers and fun-filled endnotes. A fabulous adventure for children by Robert C. O'Brien about super-intelligent rats. They are not like other rats. They work at night, in secret . . . Time is running out for Mrs Frisby. She must move her family of mice before the farmer destroys their home.

But her youngest son, Timothy, is too ill to survive the move.

Help comes in the unexpected form of a group of mysterious, super-intelligent rats.
