A story from the perspective of a rat, of its life, home and travels. Not entirely fantasy, except that the rat is narrating, says the author, A.L.O.E. (A Lady Of England), "facts are enclosed in my fiction. I would suggest to my readers how wide and delightful a field of knowledge natural history must open to all, when there is so much to interest and admire even in those animals which we usually regard with contempt and disgust."
