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 was Children’s Laureate from 2011-2013

    I read this book in Book Week and it was so funny! If you haven’t read it , I highly recommend that you check it out.

    I realy enjoyed The Highway Rat, it is one of my favorite books.

    My favourite bit was at the end in the cake shop because I like cakes!

    My least favourite bit was when the Highway Rat was eating all the food because it is coloured with dull colours.
