Forced to leave their beloved nest by a cook, a cat and the freezing cold, the Morgan Street Rats set sail for the delectable promise of peace and quiet, hot grime and stench in the Tropics. (Or so they think). But, before too long, it becomes startlingly clear that the young family of rodents are far from headed for their dream destination! And that is not the only surprise on the horizon. Little Hero is showing signs of rather unusual behaviour - he prefers the sweet taste of raisins to old fish bones, and wants to explore the more refined side of life. If he doesn't see the error of his ways soon, Hero could land himself in extremely deep water. A wonderfully entertaining novel full of jeopardy, humour and wit as well as lots of rats, a Russian sea captain, his pig, sinking ships and much much more...!show more
