Rats! I love making rats. So far I've made four in this style. The possibilities are as endless as the number of rats there are and there are a lot of rats.
Let's talk about some books on rats. I read the Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of Nihm by Robert C. O'Brien sometime after college and loved it. I had seen the animation when I was younger, but didn't really grasp what it was about until I read it. A picture book that recently came out on rats is Bad Rats by Eric Drachman. It's got great illustrations and a cute story.

I have the Mrs. Frisby book, and it is great. I always feel sad when I read a book where the rats are the bad guys. Can't both mice and rats be the good guys?

I have had several pet rats and they are fantastic animals. They are smart and fun and can be funny. They don't stink either like some other pocket pets can tend to.

Your rats are ADORABLE. I love the speckling of color on the backs of them, just perfect. These are making me wish I still had pet rats right now.
