From the bestselling author and illustrator duo of The Gruffalo! '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. Will he finally meet his comeuppance, in the form of a cunning duck? This edition has shiny purple foil on the cover - released to celebrate its 10th anniversary in 2018. A fabulous, rollicking rhyme, in the style of the famous Alfred Noyes poem, 'The Highwayman' The Highway Rat is now a gorgeous animated film produced by Magic Light and was screened on BBC1 Christmas Day 2017. From the ceators of The Gruffalo, Stick Man and ZOG, which have also been made into animated films by Magic Light and shown on BBC1 over Christmas.
