I Was a Rat! or The Scarlet Slippers - Philip Pullman 6.00   21

I WAS A RAT!

So insists Roger. Maybe it's true. But what is he NOW? A terrifying moster rampaging in the sewers? The Dailly Scrourge is sure of it.

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

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

Or just 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...
