From Kate Greenaway Medal winner, Lauren Child, creator of the BAFTA-winning, multi-million-selling Charlie and Lola, comes the latest edition of the award-winning, bestselling story of how one little street rat finds a home of his own.
Rat lives in dustbin number 3, Grubby Alley. At night, when he's tucked up in his crisp packet, Rat looks up at the cosy windows and wonders what it would be like to belong to somebody. To be an actual pet. To have a home of his own.
At least 10% of the purchase price of every copy of That Pesky Rat sold will be donated to St Mungo's Broadway, a charity providing help, support and advice to people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.
