Cheese Belongs to You!

By Alexis Deacon

Illustrated by Viviane Schwarz

From award-winning picture-book-makers Viviane Schwarz and Alexis Deacon comes a story about the struggle for dominance over one piece of cheese...

Rat law is simple: if you take a piece of cheese, it belongs to you. So if a bigger rat takes it ... then cheese belongs to them. Unless ... a quicker rat swipes it! Every rat knows rat law: if you are big or quick, strong or scary, hairy or dirty, or, indeed, all of the above, you get the cheese. But just who gets to EAT the cheese? More hilarious and innovative storytelling from the brilliant creative duo behind A Place to Call Home. This cumulative text will have readers zooming through the pages at lightning speed ... and clamouring for repeats!
