Julia Donaldson's 'The Highway Rat' Coming To TV This Christmas

The Christmas tradition of watching a Julia Donalson adaptation on the TV is continuing this year with a new version of The Highway Rat* on Christmas Day.

This half hour animated special will be voiced by a fab cast with David Tennant as the Highway Rat, Rob Brydon as the narrator, Nina Sosanya as the Duck, Tom Hollander as the Squirrel and Frances de le Tour as the Rabbit.

This adaptation is from the same team that brought us previous festive animated versions of The Gruffalo, Room On The Broom and Stick Man, all based on the award winning picture books from Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler.

If you want to check out the book first the best price at the time of writing is at Amazon*where it's currently £3.72.

This story is a favourite in our house so we will definitely be tuning in. "Give me your buns and your biscuits!"

The Highway Rat will air on Christmas Day at 4.45pm on BBC One.
