The Highway Rat book review




This fabulous little book will be released March 1, 2013.  The author is Julia Donaldson and the illustrator is Alex Scheffler.  They are the creators of The Gruffalo.

Julia Davidson's enchanting story is based on Alfred Noye's poem The Highwayman.

The rhyming text is sure to be a winning read-aloud for kids of all ages to enjoy. The clever rhymes tell the hilarious story of a "baddie rat" who steals snacks, clover from a rabbit, nuts from a poor squirrel and even the hay from his own horse!  That is really a low and mean thing to do isn't it?

Who can put a stop to his stealing?  This little villain is a wickedly loveable character but in the end he gets his just desserts.

Keep a watchful eye out for this book's release and be sure to pick up a copy.  I know you will not be disappointed.

Read on and read always!
