All In The Same Boat Badass New Grim Modern Fable About Greed Featuring A Rat, A Mouse And A Gerbil by Wilkie J. Martin; illustrated by Tanja Russita

When the boat goes down, the only survivors are a rat, a mouse and a gerbil.  The rat is a bully.  He eats most of the food, drinks the water whenever he wants, and makes the other two sit in the pointy end of the rowboat.  As they get thin, he gets fat...
The Witcherley Book Company and Net Galley let me read this book for review (thank you.  It has already been published so you van grab a copy now.
He keeps chewing on the rowboat to make wood chips to keep him warm.  They ask him to stop but he doesn't listen.  Then he sneaks over and grabs the mouse for a snack while the gerbil was sleeping.  Then he starts chewing again and soon sprouts a leak.  There's an island they can head for so they start swimming.  The rat gets what he deserves but the gerbil reaches the island safely.
Don't be a bully and don't be piggy!
