Product description

‘Give me your buns and your biscuits! Give me your chocolate eclairs! 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. Will he finally meet his comeuppance, in the form of a cunning duck? A fabulous, rollicking rhyme, in the style of the famous Alfred Noyes poem, ‘The Highwayman’, from the authors of ‘The Gruffalo’ and ‘Zog’. ‘The Highway Rat’ has been made into an animated film and premiered on BBC1, Christmas 2017.

    I read this book in Book Week and it was so funny! If you haven’t read it , I highly recommend that you check it out.

    I realy enjoyed The Highway Rat, it is one of my favorite books.

    My favourite bit was at the end in the cake shop because I like cakes!

    My least favourite bit was when the Highway Rat was eating all the food because it is coloured with dull colours.
