Publisher's Description

The creator of Clarice Bean has conjured up a clever alley critter so appealing—and so hilarious—that young readers will be begging to take him home.


Sometimes . . . I look up at all the cozy windows and wonder what it would be like to live with creature comforts . . . to be a real pet. Most of all I would like to have a name, instead of just that pesky rat.

A glamorous life in the lap of luxury like Pierre the chinchilla would be
very nice. But really, our hero’s not that fussy - he just wants to belong to somebody. With his cute, pointy brown face and beady eyes, why can’t he get someone to take him home? Even a notice posted at the local pet store seems fruitless, until one day a nearsighted old man stops in and speaks the amazing words: "I’ll take him." After all, he says, he’s been looking for ages for a brown cat as nice as this.

In her latest tour de force, acclaimed author-illustrator Lauren Child introduces a surprisingly endearing character, and assures young readers there’s enough love for all of us.

Author Bio

Lauren Child is the author of three award-winning books about the irrepressible Clarice Bean and two books about siblings Lola and Charlie. Of this book she says, "I got the idea for THAT PESKY RAT when for several months, I was without a fixed address, so I house-sat, watered plants, fed cats, and slept on friends’ floors. I found myself longing for a place of my own and couldn’t help gazing into people’s windows, thinking how cozy their homes looked, longing to be somewhere that feels like home."
