Genre: Fantasy Review: This is an adorable fantasy. It is believable because the fears that Little Rat faces are fears that many elementary students could have. By the end of the book she is more confident and she is able to face her fears through her experiences. However, she is a rat and so the book is fantastical, because rats don't sail.

The pictures don't seem to go with the text - pictures are very old-fashioned retro feel (40s?) but text is modern (Little rat feels like a "dork" because her life jacket doesn't match. Also the animals are not very anthropomorphized in the pictures - which is nice in some ways but odd when they're having discussion about going sailing etc. (Also I keep thinking the bear is going to eat the rat, And Buzz Bear is a stupid name).However - excellent illustration of the parts of the boat - kids who like boats at this age (pre-school - K?) would love that. And I guess the story might be reassuring to kids that they will eventually get over their fears.

This book was very odd to me because I didnt feel like a lot went on in the story. I was confused so I reseached Molly Bang on the internet and discovered that she actually bought a mouse and based the series of stories off of him. I feel like this was a good idea but I think she should have focused more on the point of the story instead of the pictures as much. Although, I really enjoyed the pictures.

This is a story about a little rats who sets sail and faces many obstacles and fears along the way. The fears that Little Rat faces are fears that many elementary students could have. By the end of the book she is more confident and she is able to face her fears through her experiences. This book would great to read to K-2 graders. It helps teach them how to get over some fears and to be brave.

A small-ish black dragon circled in the sky once or twice, then flying high enough o look like a fly.

Bienvenue glanced up at his older brother, while Mandola, afore mentioned brother, stood and drew a terrifying double-bladed sword and sparred with the air.

The son of Apollo looked around. He had his hand on his sword hilt.
