Rim Rat the Wease (Weaze? or Weese?) steals eggs (that would otherwise hatch to be chicks) and takes them to his diner to cook them. There is a monkey who climbs a telephone pole in the beginning of the book. The diner might be called the Sunny Side diner. . . or something like that. The biggest thing I remember is Rim Rat the Wease, who I’m guessing is a big weasel though in my head he looks like a giant rat, the diner, the eggs and the monkey. I think the Monkey and other animals have to go save the eggs so they don’t get cooked. Thank you!!
