Author: Philip Pullman

A lonely, older couple find their lives turned upside down when they take in a little boy wearing a page’s uniform and making a most extraordinary claim: “I was a rat.” The boy, who they dub Roger, certainly behaves very rattily–gnawing and eating anything at hand, fearing cats, and having no idea about proper manners. 218 more words
