Revised for 2020! The baby rat Ralph explores his new world with the farm boy Bing. But fitting in is a challenge as Ralph learns that behaving right is more easily said than done. When Bing's birthday party goes awry, can Ralph rescue his friend by using the traits that others frowned upon? Bright and dynamic illustrations will appeal to new parents, those interested in Asian culture, and lovers of classic rodent tales such as Stuart Little and The Mouse and the Motorcycle. The third in the series Tales of the Chinese Zodiac follows The Year of the Pig (2007) and The Year of the Dog (2006). 2008 was the Year of the Rat! Each book features a unique cast of creatures from the Chinese lunar calendar.
