I WAS A RAT!
New York : Alfred A. Knopf,
IL 3-6 RL 5.4
young boy seemed to be just an ordinary boy. But the old couple didn't
know what to make of him when he told them that he used to be a rat.
It's true that his behavior was a bit off. He had a tendency to shred
his bedclothes to make a nest. He ate just about anything he could
find. And he had no manners to speak of. But the couple was
childless and felt a strange attachment to the peculiar little boy.
When the Royal Philosopher heard the stories about the rat boy, he took
it upon himself to investigate the claim. The old couple couldn't
refuse the request that the boy be brought to the castle. Little
did they know what chain of events would be triggered by this. What
will happen to the boy? Was he really a rat in boy's clothing?
And what does the new Princess know about all this? To find out,
read I WAS A RAT by Philip Pullman.
