The Children Who Smelled a Rat

Written by Allan Ahlberg

Illustrated by Katharine McEwen

Part of the The Gaskitts Series

The Children Who Smelled a Rat Synopsis

The fourth of Allan Ahlberg's mini-masterpieces for early readers. In this thrilling, thunderous (and extra-long) Gaskitt story, Mrs Gaskitt finds a parcel, Mr Gaskitt loses a baby, Horace has mixed feelings about a bird, and the twins' teacher, Mrs Fritter, is - ooer! - not herself. Why? How? When? Why? (again). The children smell a rat!

The Children Who Smelled a Rat Press Reviews

A timely reissue in handsome paperback editions. Ahlberg's gift for conveying funny situations and fast-paced action adventure in an uncluttered storyline is perfectly matched by energetic illustrations that fill in the detail * Guardian *
