About the Author

Blythe Ayne is the author and illustrator of The Rat Who Didn't Like Rats. She lives on ten acres of forest where there are not only forest rats, but many other creatures as well. She takes care of the forest so it can remain the safe home for rats, mice, squirrels, raccoons, deer, bears, chipmunks, moles, rabbits, wild and domestic geese, bats, opossum, chameleons, owls, blue jays, robins, thousands of other birds, and millions of contented insects. Blythe also writes other types of books besides children's story books. She writes stories for adults, as well as non-fiction and poetry. The one thing her books have in common is to encourage people to discover what gives them the greatest joy, peace and enthusiasm in their lives. And to always be kind and loving to every living thing.

Reginald hates rats. That's unfortunate, because Reginald is a rat. The poor guy isn't having an identity crisis, he just simply doesn't know that he is a rat. Although the other animals try to tell him, he is insulted and doesn't believe them. Even when the other animals tell Reginald all the good things about rats, he argues that other animals are better. But then he meets another rat, Raquel, who helps him to see himself for what he is. This book is a great way to teach kids that the way they see themselves and the way others see them, can be very, very different. I did not love the illustrations, which were not very good representations of various animals, although maybe that was intentional.

Reginald, the sharply dressed rat of the title, snobbishly eschews all other rats, safe in the misguided belief that he is not one of them. How he has come this far without knowing his own origins is not clear, nor is what he does think he is. Somehow this doesn't really seem to matter though once you get into the story, which is really rather sweet. Reginald is invited to a farewell party. The room is filled with animals, all there to celebrate the migration of the geese for winter. Reginald spends most of his time telling all he encounters that he hates rats and won't hear anything in their defence. Something his friends seem very tolerant of. Then a girl rat, Raquelar, rives at the party and catches Reginald's eye. He has a bit of a problem believing she is a rat. Finally his friends manage to convince him that not only is she a rat, but so is he. He then surmises that rats cannot be so bad after all.
Much can be read into this, but for me this a book about acceptance of others, and even when one's perception of another is that of difference, a closer look will often reveal we are very much the same.
The illustrations are wonderful and quirky and the writing is sharp and funny. I enjoyed this book very much and would recommend it for ages 8 and over.

A cute and funny story. I enjoyed the wry humor and I hope there are more forest friends stories to come. Something about the quietness of this book and its quirky illustrations reminded me of a lovely old Brittish children's book--the type the parents enjoy as much as the children do!
