"THIS IS RAT LAW: Cheese belongs to YOU. Unless a BIG rat wants it."
Synopsis: Cute tale of what can happen when one rat wants a piece of cheese belonging to another rat. Rat law seems to favor the bullies of the world until someone remembers the Golden Rule and everyone comes away a cheesy winner!
Why I liked it: Rats don't usually make good subject matter but in this cute story they are very relatable, especially if you have a child currently dealing with bullies. The illustrations are simple but the expressions on the faces of the rats help tell the story and I loved the cheesy ending.
