Anyone who has been to 'Gotham City' and wandered about a bit has most likely spotted a giant inflatable rat or two. There are many stories as to why they are there but, until now, nobody had discovered the real truth about their secret lives. Join celebrated children's author, Sir Rhymesalot as he goes undercover to burrow down to the inflated-rat-underworld for a ride that lifts you high into the sky. As with all Sir Rhymesalot titles, rhythm and rhyming verse lead the way, and sing you through the steps of the adventure.The Sir Rhymesalot reading level (lexile) is age 11 - 14 (grade 4 - 6) but parents reading these books to children aged 3 - 7 (K - 2) can strengthen literacy and vocabulary significantly in their young minds. This is due to the power of rhyme as a literacy builder.

Author Biography

An Australian poet-pirate-persona is a very good place to start describing this relentless-rhymer, but his books are as multidimensional as the renaissance polymath himself. Simon Mills is a gregarious, larger-than-life author who masterfully communicates on multiple levels. Courageously comedic and then soulful when you least expect it, his stories entertain the parent reader on one level and the youngster on another entirely. You will meet Violet the Virus who longingly loves people but has no idea she is harmful. You will meander through Venice with Pigeoni, the Italian consigliere whose fanciful-fairytales prove too much for his fellow feathered friends until they discover the remarkable truth of his character. Parables that ponder themes from bullying to self-belief in I Lost My Brave, and from racial harmony, in Cyril the Squirrel to social distancing dilemmas in I Lost My Hug.
