Description

One in a series of humorous books about disgusting creatures, "The Rat" is a look at the black rat. It covers such topics as the rat's long, agile tail (it's good for balancing and picking noses), long teeth (they can chew through anything, including books) and disgusting taste in food (delicious electrical wires in tomato sauce, anyone?). Although silly and off-the-wall, "The Rat" contains real information that will tie in with curriculum.show more

Review quote

Praise for "The Fly" "Young readers will at least come away with a thorough understanding of how unsanitary these insects are and also, perhaps, clearer pictures of their physical makeup, life cycle and even some of the differences among fly species. Gross-out potential, for sure--but also likely to give larval entomologists a mild buzz." --" Kirkus"show more
