The Cricket in Times Square meets Finding Nemo--a subway rat must cross New York City to bring his lost little brother home.

Raffie Lipton lives a rat's dream life. In his family's subway station home, he has all the food he can forage from the treasure chests humans call trash cans, and the perfect shoebox bed for telling his brother his famous adventure stories. But when one of those stories goes awry and his little brother is taken from their Brooklyn subway station, Raffie must set out on an adventure across the city to find him. Along the way, he meets other urban animals--a street-wise pigeon, a pampered show dog, a genteel cockroach--and he faces hungry cats, greedy squirrels, and sewer rat kings.

In Raffie on the Run, Jaqueline Resnick crafts a tale of friendship and adventure, where a little rat with a big imagination must embark on his own real-life story, and find the inner hero he isn't sure he has.
