Catch That Rat by Caryl Hart


Catch That Rat by Caryl Hart

I went out this morning, and what did I see? A white, whiskered rat, looking straight back at me! With scratchy pink claws and a pink pointy nose it was dressed in some raggedy baggy old clothes. Then suddenly, SQUEAK! It jumped over my toes! QUICK! CATCH THAT RAT! The chase to catch the cheeky little jumper-wearing rat who is the star of this story leads a little girl, her granny, the postman and some builders on a crazy race through the house, all over town, on a plane...ending up in space! It takes a bright red alien with twenty-six eyes to explain the best way to catch that rat...
