Yes, this is the sequel to Mrs Frisby and the Rats of NIMH. Jane Leslie Conly, the author of Racso, is the daughter of the late Robert C O'Brien, who wrote the award-winning original. As both an analogy of life and an extremely well-written story, this is a superb book. Racso is en route to find the Rats of NIMH, symbols of a 'better life'. 'Scientists taught them to read and gave them special injections to make them clever,' He wouldn't have survived far into his journey but for Timothy Frisby, a humble field mouse, rescuing him from drowning in a whirlpool. The two become friends and fellow travellers, as Racso pursues his Grail. 'Learning is important. I've got to educate myself. I can't spend my whole life lying around the sewers eating rubbish!'
