The Highway Rat by Julia Donaldson
Julia Donaldson is back with another fantastic read for children of all ages. Full of rhyming prose, which are accompanied by beautiful illustrations by Axel Scheffler, this book is sure to become a story time favourite this year.
there is of course a message behind the story - this one being not to steal from others because it can come back to haunt you! It has been inspired by the poem, "The Highwayman" by Alfred Noyes and is told in a very child friendly way which will have children reciting the prose very quickly. I am sure this book will become as popular as The Gruffalo very soon.
I received this book through the Amazon Vine Programme.
