Product description

A bedtime rhyme with rattitude from Julia and Axel. 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…

  • A funny rhyming romp by the creators of The Gruffalo
  • Explores themes of saying sorry and starting afresh
  • Julia and Axel are the UK’s leading picture book team
  • Julia served as Children’s Laureate from 2011-2013
