The paperback of Gavin Bishop's award-winning Rats!

Rats! is a quirky, lively fun story with stunning illustrations.

Polly Piper's house is infested with rats - they are everywhere. She calls in an exterminator (closely resembling the Pied Piper) who leads them all away. When they go, Polly finds her life is empty and boring. Miserable, they plead to come back - so of course Polly agrees - and they all live happily ever after!

This book stands out for its finely detailed and exciting illustrations - they are beautiful and will give readers plenty to discover and delight in.
