I very much enjoyed this story. Rhian Waller does a wonderful job giving each of the rats their own distinct and likable personalities. I learned not only about the habits of the Norwegian rats, but the historical elements of a cargo ship in the 1700’s. The relationship between Runa and Lu was adorable, and Black Spot was a good villain for the three ritten sisters to go up against as they faced their trials on the Myst.

Ship Rats is an amazing work about the rats. I loved the way how brilliantly the author described their thoughts, fear and communication.
