The Highway Rat (New Julia Donaldson Book) £5.49 @ The Book Depository

13 September 2011

theHighwayRat If you want to buy a book KNOWING it's going to be awesome, and that your child is going to love it, then you only need to make sure that Julia Donaldson is the author.

The Highway Rat is her new book, is sure to be a hit just like all her others and you can pick it up from the Book Depository for £5.49 instead of £10.99.

The Highway Rat is not very nice.

He steals food from all the other animals, even the hay from his own horse, and the entire story is written in fabulous Julia Donaldson rhyme.

"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!"

He may have met his match, however, in the form of a cunning duck!

You'll have to read the story to find out who wins the day, or perhaps the duck persuades the rat to mend his thieving way! <--- my attempt at some Julia Donaldson rhyming! I thought it was pretty good straight off the cuff...
