Details

Gie's yer toffee and tablet,
Yer sookers, choaclits and chews!
For I am the Reiver Rat o the Road,
And I'll tal a tellin fae youse.


Life is not safe for the other animals, as the villainous Reiver Rat gallops along the highway, stealing their food. Clover from a rabbit; nuts from a squirrel - he even steals his own horse's hay. Will he finally meet his comeuppance, in the form of a cunning duck?

A fabulous, rollicking rhyme, in the style of the famous Alfred Noyes poem, 'The Highwayman', from the authors of The Gruffalo and Zog.
