While reading I found myself so deeply committed due to the relationship between Chris Straight to the point: While reading I found myself so deeply committed due to the relationship between Christopher and R-T I was almost brought to tears over how simple yet profound their love for each other was. Anyhoo, I suppose if a reader liked "Frisby" due to the originality of the super-lab rat plot, then absolutely "Racso" and "R-T, Margaret" will miss the mark.
However, Conly, even moreso in "R-T, Margaret", is able to evolve the Rats of NIMH story into a completely character-driven saga, where cool and fantastical premises are just not necessary. In this instalment the rats stumble on two children lost in the mountains, Margaret and RT need help to survive until they can get home but after a time being with the rats starts to become "home" and second nature to them.

Will the children be able to keep quiet about the rats or will their cover be blown and NIMH will find out? Timothy and Racso arrive at Thorn Valley, but while Timothy integrates and begins receiving the same accelerated education as the rat children, Racso, coming from a colony of savage urban rats, has trouble adjusting to life in a cultured town of rodents.
Racso is also burdened by his family history, as his father deserted the rats' previous colony, placing them in danger of extinction. Life in Thorn Valley is suddenly threatened when humans begin planning to build a dam there, flooding the entire area. Racso, Timothy, and the entire rat colony must observe and sabotage the dam construction before the valley is underwater. Conly wrote her sequel long after O'Brien's death inso even though Conly's book attempts to answer many of the open-ended questions posed by the original, it is still Conly's work and not O'Brien's.
One of the most anticipated events of the first book was the possibility of Mrs.

While it ties up this plot point cleanly, many readers criticized this, feeling that the other children had much potential and deserved more exploration. Another question from the first book that Conly chose to answer relates to the fate of Justin, one of the rats who was a major character in the first book.
In the end of the original story, O'Brien hints that Justin sacrificed his life when he went back to rescue a fallen rat. However, Conly chose to keep Justin alive and well in her sequel. Another subject in which more information was brought to light was that of Jenner. In the first book it was hinted that Jenner had died, but in an event prior to those of the book.
