Hilarious highly-illustrated story for younger readers aged 5+

Younger readers will laugh out loud at Lenny Lemmon and the Invincible Rat by Ben Davis and illustrated by James Lancett, plus they'll have fun with the accompanying activity pack which we created for Parrot Street Book Club subscribers in June 2023.

Lenny Lemmon is a hoot! Completely chaotic, hilarious good fun with brilliant illustrations throughout. We love the school setting and the relatable characters. This is the first in a fab new series and perfect for newly independent readers.

Lenny Lemmon is looking forward to Olden Days Day at school. It’s a chance to break the routine and try school as it was years ago. It explains the blackboard in the corner, his teacher’s bad temper and why his friend Sam looks like Oliver Twist.

And Lenny’s pleased with his own contribution, too. It’s in a cardboard box at the back of the class at the moment because it’s not yet time to shine. Except it escapes and ends up in the bowl of sick, sorry, gruel, that Amelia Kelly has brought up, sorry, in.

Soon there are small, gruelly footprints all over the classroom and also a lot of screaming because the rat that Lenny found by the back of the chip shop is FREE. It takes the arrival of cool new girl, Jessica Conrad, to distract everyone. Jessica has a plan to catch the rat but it’ll cost them.

Can the three kids round up the rat before more damage is done? Or will they end up in the headmaster’s office – again. Maybe, but they’re going to need a bigger net…

Ben Davis is an award-winning children’s author. He lives in Tamworth with his ever-patient family and in his spare time enjoys rock climbing, white-water rafting and pretending to have adventurous hobbies.

The activity pack includes book club-style questions to ponder, facts about rats and a recipe for Hawaiian pizza, alongside jokes and further reading recommendations. Solve our word search, draw an olden days portrait and have fun with our running rat craft project too!

Activity packs are a handy A5 size and printed on uncoated paper which is fully recyclable.
