You may have read recently about the amazing rat named Magawa who passed away in December.
No? Well, in case you missed the extraordinary tale of this extraordinary creature, you can soon read all about him!
A new, TRUE STORY, coming this April! Part of the Animalographies series of books about remarkable animals.
I had heard about this rat a few years ago but I didn’t know whether I wanted to write about a rodent.
EWWW, rats! Right?
(Except for Templeton in Charlotte’s Web, of course!)
As soon as I read about Magawa’s amazing landmine-sniffing abilities, however,
I changed my mind.
A rat, who’s a real hero? YES, PLEASE!
The book is illustrated by Keiron Ward and Jason Dewhirst, who have also illustrated the next book in the series (but that’s a post for another time!)
