Life is not good for Zoe; she has an evil step mum Sheila (Sheridan Smith) who has stolen her dad, her life is made a misery by the school bully Tina Trotts and her pet hamster has just suspiciously died. When she finds a baby rat in her room who not only understands her but also dances, Zoe is determined to enter the school talent show and prove to everyone that rats are lovely pets. It is no easy feat, along the way she clashes with her step mum, encounters Burt the Burger man (David Walliams) who is after her rat for his special burgers and risks her life to prove her rat can dance. "A modern fairy tale ... that nicely combines the feelgood and the grostesque in time-honoured fashion" - INEWS.
