Staff Reviews


Malcolm is often mistaken for a mouse, but is a rat. However, just because he is physically a rat does that mean he has to act like a rat? Or worse, a rat fink? When Malcolm (formerly a pet-shop rat and now a 5th grade pet at a local elementary school) is accused of being just that, can he solve the many mysteries that seem to keep happening? Can Malcolm clear his name, make friends with not only the other school pets (who keep their beloved school safe after the lankies (adults) and nutters (children) leave) but the nutters of his classroom (even though that is strictly forbidden)? A fantastic mix of fantasy, mystery and even a little romance! The twists and turns in are as many as the corridors of Malcolm’s new home! Fun illustrations by Brian Lies add to the adventure. — Jeanette
