The Short and Incredibly Happy Life of Riley

The Short and Incredibly Happy Life of Riley

by Colin Thompson

This laugh-out-loud picture book will appeal to people – and rats – of all ages. Riley is born happy, and, in his short life, is never anything else. Human beings, on the other hand, are never happy. They want to be someone else, somewhere else, looking like something else (while eating something completely different).
