The Infamous Ratsos
author: Kara LaReau
illustrator: Matt Myers
Louie and Ralphie Ratso’s dad, Big Lou, always says that there are two kinds of people: those who are tough and those who are soft. Louie and Ralphie are tough, tough, tough, just like Big Lou, and they’re going to prove it. But every time they try to show just how tough they are, the Ratso brothers end up accidentally doing good deeds instead. What’ll Big Lou do when he finds out they’ve been acting like softies all over the Big City? The recipient of a Theodor Seuss Geisel Honor, this clever and surprisingly warmhearted chapter book shows that being tough all the time can be really tough.
A Theodor Seuss Geisel Honor Book!
“Louie and Ralphie Ratso are determined to be as tough as their truck-driver father, but the rats’ efforts go hilariously awry.” — Publishers Weekly (starred review)
