Product Description

Having escaped the clutches of the criminal mastermind known as, "Mother" and a life scrounging through the sewers of London, Joe Rat is back, now working as a sweeper in a more upscale part of the city. Soon a wealthy philanthropist, Mr. Harvey, takes an interest in Joe, locating his father and bringing the man back to England from the Canadian wilderness. But when Mr. Harvey's son, jealous of the kindness shown to Joe, risks the lives of all those around him, Joe will have to decide whom to trust and where his loyalties lie.

Publisher's Description

Having escaped the clutches of the criminal mastermind Mother and his life scrounging through the sewers of London, Joe Rat is back, now working as a sweeper in the more upscale Lomesbury Square. After he foils a burglary at one of the 'posh' houses on the square, the owner, Mr Harvey — a rich philanthropist — determines to help Joe. Harvey manages to track down Joe's father, a British army deserter now living wild in Canada. Joe has never met his father, but Harvey brings the wild man back to England and helps set them both up in better jobs. But when Harvey’s son, jealous of the kindness shown to Joe, risks the lives of those around him, Joe will have to decide where his loyalties lie.

Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review
"Joe's second adventure is a tragedy of parallel lives and class divisions. Since his escape from the claustrophobic, danger-ridden alleys of Victorian London's Pound's Field at the close of Joe Rat(2009), Joe has been robbed of his stash of toshed treasures, so he attempts street sweeping in upscale Lomesbury Square. The job's requisite slick patter is beyond him, so he runs errands for one well-off family's cook and is quickly mesmerized by the Harveys, whose strange, upper-class ways he studies through their dining-room window each evening. Joe's role in foiling a burglary earns him the respect of Mr. Harvey, a banker and noted charity worker, and the avid, jealous curiosity of Alec, the Harveys' wayward son. When Mr. Harvey brings Joe's long-absent father back to England, he unwittingly brings out the worst in Alec, a fully three-dimensional nascent sociopath, whose desperate ploy for attention and glory brings Joe's hopes to ruin. Readers will be pleased that the door is left open for a third tale of the enterprising, tough street kid with a genuine heart of gold."
 
Booklist
"Joe may not be scrounging London's sewers anymore — as in Joe Rat — but, guv'nor, the lad's life ain't got much finer. Reduced to sweeping horse dung, he meets Alec, the rich son of a banker, and the two forge a friendship complicated by Alec's domineering father, opium-addicted mother, and the boy's competing desires: one wants security, the other adventure. As is appropriate for the time period, there's a lineage mystery, too: a wild old soldier claiming to be Joe's father has returned. Barratt writes like he is keeping an adjacent berth to Dickens; here's hoping scrappy Joe has a few more tricks up his ratty sleeves."
