Rita ‘Roberella’ Rat is the leader of The Rat Burglars – they’re tough, they’re cool, they’re rats. And along with the rest of the gang, life for The Rat Burglars is pretty sweet. Until one day, Hold-em’-Up Harry is mistaken for a pet hamster and given to a kid who calls him . . . Snuggle Puff Rainbow Muffin. Could there be anything worse? The Rat Burglars know they have to save Harry, and FAST, but with all the free food, fun exercise wheel, and lullabies, will Harry WANT to be saved?

This is a brilliantly funny picture book that had us in hysterics! Rita 'Roberella' Rat is the leader of the rat gang. Whilst waiting to steal some food outside the pet shop Harry 'Hold Em Up' Hamster gets caught by the petshop owner and sold to a little girl. Will the rat gang successfully be able to rescue Harry or will the little hamster change his ways and start to enjoy life as Snuggle Puff Muffin Rainbow? Read the story to find out! I love picture books that make adults and children laugh at the same time. This is such a great story. The illustrations are fantastic. We loved the rodent line up at the start and the house with it's laser beams. Just brilliant! We have pre ordered this book so we can add it to our collection. Thank you to NetGalley and Simon and Schuster for this eARC.
I read this book with my four-year-old daughter and she LOVED it. She was giggling away and we really had fun reading the story! She is mad on hamsters, rabbits, guinea pigs and chinchillas so the book was always going to be a hit with her The illustrations were great and they really brought the story to life too.t was well written and well-paced and perfect for her to follow the story It is 5 stars from us – very highly recommended!!
