A cute children’s books about white lab rats who get out and have the Chrismas Cats help round them up. It’s written in verse with a beat similar to a Doctor Seuss story. The book teaches children not to judge, and to keep an open mind about the differences of others.

The poetic prose is accompanied by beautiful and whimsical cartoon imagery by Gary McCluskey. I thought it was a sweet little book, and if I had children I’d definitely have it as one to read to them. Suitable for all ages.

    Thanks for taking part in the tour. I’m so glad you enjoyed Christmas Cats Chase Christmas Rats.

  3. Connie (aka, Constance) Corcoran Wilson Says:

    Thanks for the lovely review. I haven’t been out to Amazon lately, but if you wouldn’t mind posting it there, I’d be very grateful. I find different things to enjoy in the expressions on the rats’ faces every time I look at Gary McCluskey’s great illustrations, so I’m giving credit where it is due.
    Thank you again for participating in the Virtual Tour arranged by Teddy.
