The Lovereading4Kids comment

A wonderfully entertaining and rollicking yarn that’s full of jeopardy, humour and wit as a young, rather wayward rat explores an alarmingly different side of life when he and the rest of his family set sail for sunnier climes, where they meet lots more rats, a Russian sea captain, his pig, sinking ships and much more besides.

Synopsis

Hero And The Sinking Ships by Richard Hamilton

The Morgan Street Rats set sail for the delectable promise of peace, hot grime and stench in the Tropics. Little Hero shows signs of unusual behaviour - he prefers the taste of raisins to old fish bones, and wants to explore the refined side of life. If he doesn't see the error of his ways soon, Hero could land himself in extremely deep water.
