From the bestselling author and illustrator duo of The
Gruffalo!
'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 ceators of The Gruffalo, Stick Man and ZOG,
which have all been made into animated films
shown on BBC1
Zog and the Flying Doctors will show on BBC1 in
December 2020.
