    A shocking tale of the aftermath of a shipwreck 
    in which greedy Rat threatens the lives of his smaller companions as they drift in a lifeboat amid shark-infested waters. 
    A cautionary new fable about greed and bullying for ages 7-11. It is also an allegorical tale about the inconsiderate and treacherous overuse of finite resources by the large and powerful at the expense of the small and vulnerable, where horrifyingly no one wins. 
    'It might even out-grim Grimm.' Goodreads Reviewer TheediscerningIf you like the original fables of the Brothers Grimm and Aesop, you'll love the astonishing All In The Same Boat by Wilkie J. Martin.
