Product description

Review

"This is a highly artful, child-friendly pastiche which takes a famous fairy tale as its starting point, pokes fun at adult pretensions and gullibility on the way, and rattles along to a deeply satisfying conclusion" (Daily Telegraph)

"Combining elements of fairy tale, satire, slapstick humour and suspenseful melodrama . . . A glorious tale" (Guardian)

"All life is here in this skilful unfolding of a very human tale from a great storyteller" (The Bookseller)

"A comic genius of children's fiction" (The Times)

"A skilful fusion of fairytale and contemporary culture, combining elements of satire, slapstick humour and suspenseful melodrama to create a wonderfully imaginative story that can be read on many levels" (Writeaway!)

Book Description

An intriguing and exciting tale about a rat who turned into a little boy and couldn't change back again, in this fairy story from Master Story-teller Philip Pullman.
