Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Children will delight in the sheer audacity of the irrepressible red cat -- who absolutely refuses to play by human rules." Booklist, ALA
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Spring has sprung with a bouquet of book-and-cassette titles. Despite his rotten behavior, Ralph the cantankerous red cat is feted by his owner, Sarah, in Happy Birthday Rotten Ralph by Jack Gantos, illus. by Nicole Rubel. The lively story, read by the author, features rambunctious background music, "meow" page-turn signals and the plastic case with handle familiar to fans of the Houghton Mifflin Carry-Along Book and Cassette Favorites series. (Apr.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
School Library Journal
Ralph is, and always has been, definitely rotten. Now it's his birthday; Sarah wakes up to find him searching through her bedroom closet for his present. When they go to the store to buy party favors, he wreaks havoc, and he jumps on a fire truck on the way home. Once home, Ralph licks all the icing off his own cake and breaks the pinata. Sarah finally sends Ralph to his room, warning him to stay away until he learns how to behave. While in solitary confinement, he searches for his present. When he doesn't find it, he remorsefully walks downstairs. ``SURPRISE!,'' shouts Sarah and Ralph's friends. Ralph will charm children as much as ever as he proves that even the most mischievous among them are forgiven for their overzealous antics. Rubel captures Ralph with paintbox-bright colors to illustrate the already funny text. A sure-fire winner. --Leslie Barban, Richland County Public Library, Columbia, SC
