Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s bestselling picture book, THE
HIGHWAY RAT, is now available in an appealing read-alone format.

‘Give me your buns and your biscuits!
Give me your chocolate eclairs!
For I am the Rat of the highway,
and the Rat Thief never shares!’

Life is not safe for the other animals, as the villainous Highway
Rat gallops along the highway, stealing their food. Clover from
a rabbit; nuts from a squirrel – he even steals his own horse’s hay.
Then he meets his comeuppance, in the form of a cunning duck.
A fabulous, rollicking rhyme, in the style of the Alfred Noyes poem,
‘The Highwayman’.

This Early Reader edition contains the complete classic story and
pictures, in a pocket-book format, and with an extra-clear font
and layout, to support children who are gaining confidence in reading.
