Y I Leeabout this book: I used to breed and show fancy rats. One day in a litter I noticed a particularly pretty baby. She was white with a most unusual face marking, a near perfect black mask. She reminded me of Dick Turpin the highway man. I called her Mask and she became the inspiration for this book.
A Rat and A Ransom, is recommended for 8 year olds/adult.
Nine year old Tom had everything a young boy could wish for. Except the one thing he really wanted, a pet.
However, that was all about to change as one day while peering out of his bedroom window; he spotted a cat showing great interest in the gardener's watering can. When he goes to investigate the cat runs away, leaving Tom with the watering can.
What Tom finds inside is not what he expects, and certainly does not please his parents, especially his mother. Nevertheless, the small creature huddled inside the can proves to be the best pet a young boy could have!
