Its the story of a brave little rat called, Timere, who, in order to bring unity and peace, willingly faces the terror of the Rat Run.
In some ways, the story has a similarity to an Aesop's fable.
In essence, love conquers all.

Y I Lee was born in Swindon Wiltshire, the eldest of three children.
From a young age her greatest joy was to curl up with a good book. They became her escape from a troubled childhood.
Over time she naturally progressed into writing. At the age of ten, she ambitiously attempted her first novel but quickly gave up. However, the seed was planted, and in the coming years in between a successful singing career she continued to put pen to paper, writing poetry and short stories.
She's always had a great love for animals, especially horses. And thanks to a friend, she also grew to love Fancy rats, and spent a number of happy years breeding and showing them.
Understandably, horses and rats often find their way into her books.
