The people of Izumba didn’t know what to do about the Rat Pack’s invasion. They only knew the stories of rats from their grandparents – – stories of how the Sassafras Cats chased the rats to the neighboring country of Yogastan. Now the returned rats ruined people’s picnics, took kids’ lunches and broke into people’s refrigerators for midnight snacks. They even watched the food network on the people’s TVs! Children and parents will giggle when they read this story. The children will learn an important message that even grumpy people can become nice! A glossary is included to help the children learn new words. A portion of the proceeds will go the charities Forgotten Harvest and Reach out and Read.
