              Ratty lives in the crater of a tall volcano. One day he spies a particularly delicious-looking fruit and he climbs a tall tree to reach it. From this high vantage point a spectacular view stretches before him - the world outside his mountain crater. In this big outside world, Rat...ty imagines, the fruit must be sweeter, the songs more beautiful and the other animals far more interesting and sophisticated. When Ratty ventures outside, nothing is quite as he expects, though he is thrilled to be asked to a dinner party by a very friendly crocodile . . . Lara Hawthorne seamlessly combines story and fact in this picture book which is based on Mount Bosavi in Papua New Guinea. In this crater environment unique animals like the giant woolly rat have evolved without predators.

              It is a frosty winter evening, and the Baron, watching the snow fall through the window, is bored and fretful. It will soon be Christmas, and yet the household is subdued. Even the dogs are dozing. What can he do to cheer up the family and bring excitement into the manor? He ...is at a loss - until his wife, the Baroness, has an idea: he can appoint a Lord of Misrule; a peasant to be in charge of Christmas revelries. For twelve days, chaotic merriment ensues - schools are closed, wives drink in taverns, priests are dressed in petticoats, monkeys sit at the head of the table and general festive bacchanalia fills the manor - all culminating in a giant, happy feast on Christmas Day.
