Description

‘I WAS A RAT!’

So insists Roger. Maybe it’s true. But what is he NOW?

A terrifying monster rampaging in the sewers?
The Daily Scourge is sure of it.

A money-spinning fairground freak?
He is to Mr Tapscrew.

A champion wriggler and a downy card?
That’s what Billy hopes.

Or just an ordinary small boy, though a little ratty in his habits? Only three people believe this version of the story. Only one of them knows who Roger really is. And luckily a story about her can sell even more newspapers than one about a rat-boy …

About the Author

The author was born in Norwich on 19th October 1946. The early part of his life was spent travelling all over the world, because his father and then his stepfather were both in the Royal Air Force. He spent part of his childhood in Australia, where he first met the wonders of comics, and grew to love Superman and Batman in particular. From the age of 11, he lived in North Wales, having moved back to Britain. It was a time when children were allowed to roam anywhere, to play in the streets, to wander over the hills, and he took full advantage of it. His English teacher, Miss Enid Jones, was a big influence on him, and he still sends her copies of his books.
