'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.
