'The Cadwalladers seemed in some ways a typical New York couple. However, Deborah, virtually raised in a University library, was really erudite in her rather scattered manner, and her husband, an unusually avid reader himself, had a curiosity amounting to monomania about Spaniards and gold. Also, though bookish, Cadwallader occasionally let his eye stray from the fine print towards Felicity, a wanton from the local fire station. Also, the Cadwalladers and most of their friends were rats. Can this marriage last? Shrewd social observer Russill Lynes, never one to recoil from a problem in domestic mores, provides an answer from sage experience in the ways of rodents and people. Cadwallader, for example, is concerned with the distinction between nice people and with why progress always weemed to get people into trouble, but most of all with why all this fuss about something called money. Of course, Deborah had the ambitions and frustrations of any woman in her position. With all their trouble, rats get very little help from people, and are often nonplussed by human behaviour. For rats this book is obviously a must. For the otherworldly reader Cadwallader, with its wonderful pictures by N.M. Bodecker, will be a rare delight.' 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
