The Infamous Ratsos Are Not Afraid
author: Kara LaReau
illustrator: Matt Myers
In the follow-up to the Theodor Seuss Geisel Honor Book The Infamous Ratsos, Louie and Ralphie Ratso have a genius idea: if they clear out the lot down the street, they can use all the junk lying around to build makeshift games for a Big City FunTime Arcade! Everyone says the house next to the lot is haunted, but if Louie just pretends it’s not there, maybe he can ignore it. Ralphie’s head is not exactly in the game, either, because of some rumors that have been swirling around school. But they’re Ratsos, and like their dad, Big Lou, Ratsos aren’t afraid of anything — right?
“Another tale for fledgling chapter book readers that highlights the profound value of kindness to others.” — Booklist (starred review)
