Written in haiku poetry and illustrated in eighteen bold color images, this memorable tale is all about friendship and sharing. Two rats share a home. While one runs on his wheel all day, the other eats. Living together but separately, the rats have nothing in common. But, when one of the rats gets stuck, the other rat comes to the rescue. Then the fun begins and the rats learn that playing together is better than working alone. Through this entertaining story and vivid images, children learn the values of cooperative play and shared adventures, which lead to strong friendships. Early reader–ages 5-8.
