    Sweet Rot Gang

    I thought the illustrations of the Sweet Rot gang were fabulous! The text was a take-off on Dr Seuss lingo. Intriguing! The Sweet Rot kids are the new "21st Century Charlie Brown gang". Great! Can't wait to find out what character will be highlighted next. Contemporary problem solving for the tween age group. Keep them coming.
