What a fun book! As I was reading, I often got lost in the moment. The author did such a great job of writing from the rat's perspective. There were moments where I laughed so hard my husband wanted me read him the excerpt. There were other times I cried and had to share what just happened. The characters and their plight compelled me to turn the page to find out what will happen next. In fact, I was so sad when the kindle said I was 94% done with the book, I didn't want the story to end. I really would love to point out some of my favorite parts but then that would required spoiler alerts. Owning rat's myself, made me want to read the book. If you have ever bought a pet at a pet store you will enjoy reading this book. If you have ever rescued a pet, you will enjoy reading this book. If you are a parent, this is a great book to read aloud with your younger children. There is a lot of action, while also teaching great morals of how to treat others. It also has so many facts about rats cleverly inserted within the story. I do not think owning rats is a prerequisite to read this book, but if you do own them, you HAVE to read this!
Our crazy rat adventure is small glimpse into our little menagerie. We never intended to, but we ended helping others fall in love with the little vermin.
