    Disappointingly obvious and unnecessarily dichotomous message story about the importance of creativity Some young rats are in trouble for singing dancing daydreaming etc while out in the big dangerous world A teacher rat tries to explain to them how they need to be unnoticed and careful in order to not get killed by bigger animals But after the children give creative performances he changes his mind I'm all in favor of not stifling creativity but this seems like a poorly thought out vehicle Why pick rats to convey this message? The older rats are right their kids will get eaten by cats if they wander down the middle of the road singing It bothered me that this was presented as some sort of eitheror choice as if one couldn't be creative and sensible Why can't the rats be creative when safe at home and careful when out foraging for food? I feet like the author is one of those individuals who use art as an excuse for personal flakiness And I wasn't wowed by the illustrations either

    A story about nonconformity this is an odd tale An elderly rat who was once nearly killed by his non conformist behavior is now responsible for teaching young rats to behave themselves However at the end of the story he embraces their iconoclastic life Seemed inconsistent to me If the elder rat truly believe non conformity was life threatening why suddenly change his mind?

    This book was sadly just ok I loved the illustrations But the story was not the best The idea was great but not written well

    Sweet story of being true to yourself as well as being brave and well artistic Not uite sure how the younger audience will get it Not sure if an older kids' audience would appreciate it But I found it tender and am glad I read it Loved the simplicity of the illustrations too I don't have the ability to listen to the audio CD that accompanies the book right now but from the looks of it I think it would definitely add to the experience

    Despite my strong dislikefear for rodents I really did enjoy this book Could be used at the beginning of the year to help develop community in the classroom This text highlights and celebrates the differences in each rat A great moral to the story lends itself to nice class discussion Simple pictures that allow for strong inferences

    This book is about rats and even rats have to embrace their inner self Rats are supposed to behave a certain way and there is a type of rat detention for rats that can't behave the way they are supposed to Turns out the rat detention supervisor realizes that all this while he himself has been hiding his innter self

    One of the extremely poor readers who hates books followed along with the version that has a read along cd She says she really liked it and wanted to read it again That excites me very muchI think she really identified with seeming to always be in trouble for being different and creative
