Publisher Comments:

When Malcolm the rat arrives as the pet at McKenna School, he revels in the attention. He also meets the Midnight Academy, a secret society of classroom pets that keeps the nutters (kids) safe. Theres just one problem…rats have a terrible reputation! So when the Academys iguana leader is kidnapped, Malcolm must prove his innocence—and that even rats can be good guys. Illustrated by Brian Lies of Bats at the Beach, this engaging middle-grade novel will have readers rooting for Malcolm as they try to solve the mystery alongside him.


A rat, a missing iguana, and a mystery all converge in this funny and heart-warming middle grade novel illustrated by New York Times best-seller Brian Lies.

About the Author

     W.H. Beck is both an author of children's books and a librarian. She grew up in Wisconsin, the oldest of four. As a kid, her dad always teased that she would be a librarian someday. She read all the time—walking home from school, while brushing her teeth, under the table at dinnertime, and under the covers at night. And, sure enough, after earning an elementary teaching degree from the University of Wisconsin, she went on to get a masters degree in information studies from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
      She still lives and reads in Wisconsin and shares a home and books with her husband, two sons, and a big black dog.

     Malcolm at Midnight is her first novel.

Brian Lies is the award-winning author-illustrator of the New York Times bestsellers Bats at the Beach, Bats at the Library, and Bats at the Ballgame
