You may have read recently about the amazing rat named Magawa who passed away in December.
The rat who saved human lives.
The rat who earned a gold medal.
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!)
