But Wait, There's More!

Jane Leslie Conly, O'Brien's daughter, loved Mrs. Frisby so much that she wrote two books that picked up where Mrs. Frisby left off. In these stories, we meet the next generation of rodents: Timothy, Mrs. Frisby's son; and Racso, the son of Jenner, who, interestingly enough, is the head of a rebel rat group. No surprise there.
