Editorial Reviews

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.
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Kids have seen--and have loved seeing--Ralph be thoroughly rotten, even at Christmas, so it comes as no surprise that this fractious feline decides to act up on his birthday. As usual, his antics are totally outrageous, and entirely enjoyable. Ralph is on his worst behavior from the very start of the day, as Sarah awakens to find him pawing through her closet in search of his present. When she tells Ralph that he will not get his gift until his party begins, he squirts toothpaste in her slippers. The patient girl puts up with a great deal of Ralph's rottenness, but when he begins swinging on streamers and popping balloons she threatens to cancel the festivities and sends him to his room. In the end, Ralph gets his cake and his present--a set of paints, with which he immediately (of course) makes a mess. Thanks to this talented author and illustrator, Ralph more than lives up to his reputation in his latest captivating caper. Ages 4-8. (Sept.)
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
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-Jack Gantos' badly-behaved cat returns in Happy Birthday Rotten Ralph (HM, 1990). It's Ralph's birthday, but will his latest pranks cost him the party that was planned? Of course not. Rotten Ralph can get away with anything, because he is loved, even when his behavior is-well, rotten. Jack Gantos reads with expression, while lively background music plays. Readers can follow along, enjoying Nicole Rubel's busy, colorful illustrations. One side of the tape contains no signals, while the other uses a cat's meow to encourage readers to turn the page. Audio quality is excellent. This will be a hit with those who love Rotten Ralph.-Teresa Bateman, Brigadoon Elementary School, Federal Way, WA Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

    TO ALL=PERFECT WAYS TO HAVE SEX

    If you are a slave: start off with the girl tied. Make sure ur clorhes r off. Boy comes in and slaps her p.ssy. he rubs and strokes it. he gets a vibrater puts it on high and on her p.ssy. while thats happening you kiss her while playing with her t.ts. suck them. U get on her and hug her whiie shes in air. Then take the vibrater off and stick in your finger. Move it around and around. Then tak it out and put ur dick in. While that kiss and squeeze and whatever. Always tickle her opening or play with his dick. FREE: u start off standing and kiss bigtime. Then slowly take your cloths off. Sh pushes him into the bed and he falls with her. They pull the covers over them. She kisses his forehead her bo.obs in his face and he kisses them and squeezes them. Go down and down and kiss hard on his space. He kisses down to the @$$. If she goes lower to the dick he goes to the p.ssy. they work themselves back to a normal position and roll around a lot. They spread their legs and stroke eachothers outsides of the privates. ANOTHER WAY: she is chained up naked. Her legs out wide. U come in and slap jer p.ssy. hard. Dig into it and with the other hand squeeze the @$$ or stroke her sides. Ur in control. Then squeeze and play with her bo.obs. and a.ss. press down the space. Get to her sides with your hands and slide them up and down her body. Stop at the bo.obs for a while and work magic. Then go down to the a.ss and put the vibrater on her p.ssy. on high. As her insides get ready, play with her roughly. Stick diffrent things in her hole, tickle her p.ssy. squeeze her t.ts. have fun. ((THXS!!!!!!))

    Diana

    She is a 5'10 thin girl with long blond hair and pretty blue eyes. She has big t*ts, very large pu*sy, and a tight a*s. She is looking for a Master who will punish her for anything she does wrong, even if it is just something little. She is very easy going unless the Master wants hard s*x. She will go in shackles, and whipped, and more! She loves being in shackles and have a d**k stuck up her pu* sy hard, though. That's what hurts her most. She replies right away, so please choose her! She is also active;)
