Not literature, but the movie "Ratatouille" is the most pro-rat movie I've ever seen. The DVD comes with special features including a short film about the history of the domestic rat--and it speaks directly about the bubonic plague (caused by insects that killed the rats, too). I was very happy to see this great attempt to restore the rat's honor!

Breyer, yes, that rat documentary was great! I wish I could show that to everyone I know, ha ha. It was really cute and also very informative. Ratatouille is a beautiful movie. Loved it.
