The Lovereading4Kids comment
Best-selling author/ illustrator combination Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler have teamed up for another great adventure. Many of the creatures that appear in The Gruffalo feature in this rollicking adventure of a greedy Highway Rat and how he is outwitted by a very clever duck. Axel Scheffler’s animals are as full of vivid expression as usual.
The Highway Rat by Julia Donaldson
The bestselling story is now available with a high-quality audio CD. The Highway Rat rides along the highway stealing all the travellers' food. But a crafty duck and her mysterious sister soon put an end to his crooked ways Brilliantly performed by award-winning actress, Imelda Staunton, the CD contains the full story with music, the Highway Rat Listening Game and the brand new Highway Rat song, which was written specially for this CD by Julia Donaldson.
Donaldson’s ear for rhyme is unequalled and Scheffler’s busy, funny illustrations make this ideal for reading aloud with lots of voices and chances to join in. - Daily Mail
