Trade Paperback

Will these tap-dancing country rats make it big in the city?
Armed with a boom box, costumes, and city maps, five tap-dancing country rats set off to seek their fame in Rat Hollow—a rat community that pulses with a life all its own beneath the streets of New York City.

A rollicking fun-filled adventure, The Red-Hot Rattoons tells the story of a band of lovable characters whose loyalty to one another proves more important than fame and glory.
