Genre Character of the Week: Mrs. Frisby

Less than a week before Mother's Day and I can finally use one of the first ideas for a blog post I came up with - looking at the various moms in genre fiction and film who really affected me as a child. This year, Mrs. Frisby (pictured left), from the film The Secret of NIMH.

Here's the thing about Mrs. Frisby - this mouse is a pretty amazing mom, when her kids and home are in danger she goes way, way beyond the call of duty to save her family.

I've never read the book, but the movie had a huge impact on me as a child, I still own the soundtrack and am currently listening to it on my iPod.

Happy Early Mother's Day, Mom.
