The Lovereading4Kids comment
Exploring from his dustbin home in Grubby Alley, the Pesky Rat of the title takes a look at how his friends who are pets, such as Andrew the Scottie Dog and Nibbles the lop-eared rabbit, live. Could he live like that too? The Pesky Rat dreams and plans. He will make his escape one day. Proceeds from this UNESCO edition will go to the charity’s programme for the Education of Children in Need.
That Pesky Rat by Lauren Child
The pesky rat wonders what it would be like to live with the creature comforts actual pets enjoy pets like his friends Pierre the chinchilla, Oscar the Siamese cat, Nibbles the lop-eared rabbit and Andrew the Scottie dog instead of in dustbin number 3, Grubby Alley. And he's got a plan for how to make his dream come true ...All proceeds from this special edition go to UNESCO's Programme for the Education of Children in Need, which Lauren Child is supporting with her own project, 'My Life Story'. This edition includes an eight-page section all about UNESCO and Lauren's own role in helping the children they support all over the world.
