You’ve all probably seen a rat in your garden or in the streets of London looking for food around bins and rubbish. They say you are never six feet from a rat in London which is a very scary thought.
But you have most definitely never met any rat quite a huge as Igor.
Here is a taster for you from page 70 when Susie meets Igor for the first time down in the slimy, dark, dank London sewers… Under Buckingham Palace
‘Oh!’ she yelped.
‘What is it? Sshh!’
‘Look! Look at that Rat. He’s monstrous!’
A rat of enormous size – bigger than a cat – sat contentedly at Griselda’s feet, his ropey tail knotted firmly round one of her legs.
White whiskers twitched on his face. Occasionally he bared some yellowing teeth.
‘That’s Igor, the Princess’s pet rat. Yes, he is rather large, I suppose. He’s a Black Rat, and he belongs to the Old English Ratocracy. There aren’t many of them left.’
Well thank goodness there aren’t many of them left…
If you live in London and have ever wondered what goes on under your feet in the smelly sewers, Under Buckingham Palace is a must read exciting page turner. It follows the adventures of Susie, who one day finds herself down in the sewers when the lifts in her flat go wrong. She is stuck in a terrifying and dangerous world where she must fight to save the life of the Queen of England against hideous sludge gulpers and grotesque slimy creatures.
