" I Was a Rat " So insists a scruffy boy named Roger. Maybe it' s true. But what is he now? A terrifying monster running wild in the sewers? "The Daily Scourge" is sure of it. A victim of " Rodent Delusion" ? The hospital nurse says yes. A lucrative fairground freak? He is to Mr. Tapscrew. A champion wriggler and a budding thief? That' s what Billy thinks. Or just an ordinary small boy, though a little ratty in his habits? Only three people believe this version of the story. And it may take a royal intervention-- and a bit of magic-- to convince the rest of the world.
Set against the backdrop of a Royal Wedding-- and a playful parody of the press, "I Was a Rat " is a magical weaving of humor, fairy tale, and adventure.

Industry Reviews

"From the acclaimed author of the His Dark Materials trilogy comes an outrageously funny middle-grade twist on a familiar fairy tale."
