The rat tells the story of his friendship with a tiger, a big tough fellow who often uses his size and strength to his advantage. When the two play cowboys, for example, the rat has to be the bad guy. When the tiger divides a doughnut, the rat gets the little piece. The tiger is surprised one day when the rat gets angry and asserts himself, placing the shoe firmly on the other foot. Skillful, fun-filled, watercolor illustrations accompany an engaging story which will strike a chord with rats and tigers everywhere, even those who are posing as small children. (Ages 2-5)
