Product description

Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s bestselling picture book, The Highway Rat, is now available in a read-alone full-colour novel format. Teach your child to read with their favourite Julia Donaldson!‘Give me your buns and your biscuits! Give me your chocolate éclairs! For I am the Rat of the highway, and the Rat Thief never shares!’ Life is not safe for the other animals, as the villainous Highway Rat gallops along the highway, stealing their food. Clover from a rabbit; nuts from a squirrel – he even steals his own horse’s hay. Then he meets his comeuppance, in the form of a cunning duck. A fabulous, rollicking rhyme, in the style of the Alfred Noyes poem, ‘The Highwayman’.
