Synopsis

'I WAS A RAT!'



So insists Roger. Maybe it's true. But what is he NOW?



A terrifying monster rampaging in the sewers?

The Daily Scourge is sure of it.



A money-spinning fairground freak?

He is to Mr Tapscrew.



A champion wriggler and a downy card?

That's what Billy hopes.



Or just an ordinary small boy, though a little ratty in his habits? Only three people believe this version of the story. Only one of them knows who Roger really is. And luckily a story about her can sell even more newspapers than one about a rat-boy ...

Philip Pullman is one of the most highly acclaimed children's authors of the decade.

He was the first children's author ever to win the Whitbread Prize for his novel THE AMBER SPYGLASS.

Customer Reviews

I bought this book for my 9 yr old grandson because he had been learning about Pullman at school. We need to read it together because he is an average reader for his age. If you have a more mature child who reads in excess of his age it will be fine to read alone. A more immature 9 yr old may need support to follow the plot.
