The creator of Beegu is back with a hilarious new story about who owns cheese – and a lot more! According to Rat Law, if any rat has the cheese, he owns the cheese – unless another bigger, stronger, scarier, hairier Rat wants it. Many spreads later, all kinds of Rats and cheese and potentially hazardous situations have been entertainingly explored.

Synopsis

Cheese Belongs to You! by Alexis Deacon

From award-winning picture book makers Viviane Schwarz and Alexis Deacon comes a story about the struggle for dominance over one piece of cheese...Rat law is simple: if you take a piece of cheese, it belongs to you. So if a bigger rat takes it...then cheese belongs to them. Unless...a quicker rat swipes it! knows rat law; if you are big or quick, strong or scary, hairy or dirty, or, indeed, all of the above. But just who gets to EAT the cheese? More hilarious and innovative storytelling from the brilliant creative duo behind A Place to Call Home . This cumulative text will have readers zooming through the pages at lightning speed...and clamouring for repeats! It is a riotous read that offers lots of opportunities for out-loud sillinesss! Can even the most wild and anarchic society work together for the greater good? Cheese Belongs to You presents power politics for the very youngest!

Reviews

A great picture book... is as rare as hensteeth. So it is with great joy that I can add one more to the list... This is a wonderful book. (The Times)
