Selected by Indie Booksellers for the Fall 2008 Kids' List
“Young rats meet with a teacher-rat who will teach them to be good, not bad. Why are they bad? Because they're artists, and have been told anything that distracts from survival is dangerous, and therefore bad. The youngsters help their teacher relearn how to appreciate life's beauty. A lovely book with an inspiring message.”
-- Ann Burlingham, Burlingham Books, Perry, NY


Description

In fact, Josiah and his friends are aspiring artists, and for a rat, painting outside the box like that just won't do.Follow along as Josiah and several other inspired rats teach their professor the value of creativity.The companion Book-on-CD will transport you and your child into Josiah's world with sound effects and wonderful performances by children and adults. The dramatic storytelling is narrated by the author and features his young nephew, Eli Drachman, among other delightful voices!
