Little Rat can't wait to ride a horse, just like her daddy did when "he" was young. But when it's time for her first lesson, she almost changes her mind. No one said her horse, Pee Wee, would be so . . . giant! But with a bit of encouragement from Daddy Rat--and lots of help from Pee Wee--her dream of becoming a fancy rider might just come true.

Review quote

"With a remarkable understanding of childhood feelings, Bang-Campbell introduces Little Rat, who is facing a summer of sailing lessons despite being terribly afraid of the water. Molly Bang's illustrations are both gorgeous and functional, saturated not only with color . . . but also with character and mood and narrative. Little Rat's first outing should earn her a veritable flotilla of fans."--"The Horn Book" (starred review)

"Buoyant and brightly hued, Caldecott Honor artist [Molly] Bang's pictures subtly convey the growing confidence of this endearing heroine. A breezy junket for aspiring skippers and confirmed landlubbers alike."-P"ublishers Weekly"
