It's not easy being a rat. Three brothers, Snitch, Snatch and Sketch, are tired of scavenging for scraps of food down in the subway where they live. One night, they go on an adventure through the city so that they will never go hungry again.  After arriving at a large house, they discover that the next day, a children's birthday party is planned for young Horatio Bumpkin.  The brothers hatch a clever plot to break into the house during the festivities and steal as much food as possible - without getting caught.  But one greedy brother spoils the plan with a plan of his own....

REVIEWBlack Mouse Clip Art
The author wrote a cute little book that has such realistic illustrations.  They just pop out at you with the colorful and large enough to see good pictures.  The pictures go right along with the story.  A big fat rat hollers "I'm Hungry!"  He was in the dark Bowling Green Subway.  His name was Snatch and Snatch was always hungry. Snatch had two brothers, Snitch and Sketch.  Snitch was white and rather small. He had a stutter caused by a front tooth.  Snatch was grey. Snatch thought only about eating.  Then there was Sketch, the oldest.  He was black and wore a patch over one eye.  He had a terrible temper.
 The three brothers  plan to go to the top secret, Operation Bumpkin Birthday.  Their mission was to get as much food as they could without getting caught. After they get into the house they find food, food and more food.  As they were looking at this big birthday cake, trouble was brewing.  The brothers were supposed to get out of the house but Snatch wasn't going anywhere without EATING. The more he ate, the slower he got but he wasn't leaving without the cake.  What happened when the birthday boy saw his birthday cake?  What did he find int he middle of the cake?  Will the two brothers stay with Snatch even though he is constantly getting in trouble?   Or will they go off by themselves?  Will the threesome become a twosome? What happened to Snatch?  Was he caught?  Did Snatch ever see his brothers again? Is food more important than family?  Pick up a copy of OPERATION BUMPKIN BIRTHDAY by Petrina Khashoggi and take a wild journey with three rats, Snitch, Snatch and Sketch.  The author wrote a charming tale of three brothers who were rats and how selfishness and greed tore them apart. 
 
I received a complimentary copy of OPERATION BUMPKIN BIRTHDAY from the author, Petrina Khashoggi for my view of the book.

I would give this book 5 RATS.
