The Highway Rat Book & CD


A bedtime rhyme with rattitude from Julia and Axel, now including an audio CD. This furry bandit will ambush your snacks – and your heart! Quick: hide your chocolate éclairs! Do you like buns? Or tasty sweets? So does the Highway Rat. If you’ve got them, he’ll steal them. No food is safe, and that’s that. This rotten rodent steals nuts from squirrels. He hijacks his own horse’s hay. What can stop his appetite for snack-based crime? Perhaps a clever duck can save the day…
