That Pesky Rat
Publisher: Orchard Books
Pesky Rat lives in Dustbin Number 3, Grubby Alley. People call him 'That Pesky Rat', but he longs for a real name, a home and someone to care for him.
Told in Lauren Child's distinctive collage illustrations, this is the story of Pesky Rat's quest 'to belong to somebody'… even if he does have to wear a jumper.
Funny and touching, this book has been produced as part of Child's My Life is a Story project for UNESCO, and will help young readers to think about what it might mean to be without a home or a family. All profits from the book will go to UNESCO's Programme for the Education of Children in Need.
