CHEESE BELONGS TO YOU!

CHEESE BELONGS TO YOU!

9781406339666

From award-winning picture book makers Viviane Schwarz and Alexis Deacon comes a story about the struggle for dominance over one piece of cheese...

Rat law is simple: if you take a piece of cheese, it belongs to you. So if a bigger rat takes it ... then cheese belongs to them. Unless ... a quicker rat swipes it! Every rat knows rat law; if you are big or quick, strong or scary, hairy or dirty, or, indeed, all of the above. But just who gets to EAT the cheese? More hilarious and innovative storytelling from the brilliant creative duo behind A Place to Call Home. This cumulative text will have readers zooming through the pages at lightning speed ... and clamoring for repeats!

Alexis Deacon's first picture book Slow Loris (2002) was shortlisted for the Blue Peter Book Award. His second Beegu (2003) was shortlisted for the Kate Greenaway Award and selected by the New York Times as one of the year's best illustrated children's books. In 2008, he was chosen as one of the ten Best New Illustrators as part of the Booktrust's Big Picture Campaign. He recently illustrated Russell Hoban's book, Soonchild. He lives in London, SE15.
