Overview

Human beings live for quite a long time and for a lot of that time we are not happy. We want to be taller shorter fatter thinner older and younger. We want our straight hair to be curly our curly hair to be straight and our brown eyes to be blue. We hate our parents children teachers students and everybody. We want to be somewhere else with someone else eating something else and wearing something fantastic no one else can afford and we want to splash them as we drive by in our big red car. Rats live for quite a short time and for most of that time they are very very happy... This laugh-out-loud picture book will appeal to people - and rats - of all ages. A truly unique picture book by Thompson and Lissiat presents life lessons with gentle humor and satire.

If you strive for simplicity in your life, you'll find this instructional story very funny and the art work.. like art. If you're more of a consumer and collector... not so much. My grand daughters got it... I was laughing to tears when their mother read it and showed the pictures. I later ordered 3 copies for gifts to (adult) friends... who would appreciate as well. /jg
