The Christmas Rat

by Avi

Eric's Christmas becomes a lot less boring when he meets up with an unusual exterminator named Anje in his family's apartment complex. In this fast-paced story, Eric agrees to help Anje hunt down and kill the rat he's seen in the basement. But when Anje goes after the rat full-force with traditional poisons and traps and more, Eric isn't so sure he wants to kill the rat anymore. When Eric lets Anje know his feelings, the exterminator turns on the boy and the tale takes some intriguing twists.
