Reggie’s Best Week Ever! is the first story about Reggie, a young rat who is on a mission to convince everyone that rats can be good friends and are not like they always seem to be portrayed in stories or on the TV.
He thinks of a plan involving, firstly, cheering people up with some free treats, then working hard to make everyone’s lives easier by doing all their outstanding odd jobs. This leads to an invitation to some public-speaking at the local school which Reggie accepts instantly but then has second thoughts and struggles to get to sleep worrying himself terribly that he might mess it all up and not even be able to speak. Fortunately, some funny family videos help break the ice and at the end of his presentation, not only do the children and teachers really like Reggie, he and his whole family are invited to a picnic, which for rats, is like winning the lottery!
The contented rats have full tummies and the children and teachers have learned an important lesson – that just because someone looks or seems different, they can still become a friend. A beautifully thought-out children's book for ages 0 - 5 that aims to teach children to be careful that they aren't judging someone from what others say about them or appearances but learning to develop an independent mind and ideas based on their own impressions.
