Overview

Ralph outdoes himself again in this picture book of wedding bliss and bedlam.

It's Aunt Martha's wedding day and Sarah is the flower girl, but Ralph is determined to turn this celebration into an event only our favorite rotten cat could enjoy. He begins by wrapping the wedding gift with that special Ralph flair, then selecting some choice "petals" for Sarah to spread over the guests. After a riotous ceremony, he tops the day by wreaking havoc at the reception.

"Oh, Ralph you were so rotten," bemoans Sarah. Is there anything that cat will do to make her happy? You'll be surprised...

"'I bet I know who did that'", Sarah said to herself. She peeked under the table and saw Ralph eating a monster slice of cake.

Sarah's the flower girl at Aunt Martha's wedding, and Ralph is ready to tie all kinds of knots—but are they the kind that will make for marital bliss? If they involve a red cat, a monster truck, and paws full of snails, you can guess the answer. The question to be popped is: After a day of nuptial sabotage, can Ralph still make Sarah smile? Once again, Jack Gantos and Nicole Rubel manage to bring equal measures of love and nastiness to Sarah's special cat.

00 Children's Choices (IRA/CBC)

Sarah's high-spirited, poorly behaved cat, Ralph, disrupts her aunt's wedding with his outlandish antics.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 3Ralph has long been a source of irritation for long-suffering Sarah, who loves him despite his past wrongs. This latest entry to the popular series is no exception. Sarah is looking forward to being a flower girl in Aunt Marthas wedding, and the ever-rascally Ralph tries to foil her at every turn. Instead of fresh rose petals, he puts slugs and toads into Sarahs basket. He destroys her gift to the bride, causes chaos in the church, and wreaks havoc at the reception. Well, you get the idea. In the end, of course, Sarah loves him after all. Rubels vivid illustrations give the feline his usual sly, slit-eyed, winking wickedness while portraying the wedding with loads of energy and motion. As similar as it is to many of the other entries, this latest title is sure to be a hit with fans of the series.Jane Marino, Scarsdale Public Library, NY Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Wedding Bells For Rotten Ralph (40 pp.; PLB May 31; 0-06-027533-2; PLB 0-06-027534-0): Rotten Ralph (Rotten Ralph's Rotten Romance, 1997, etc.) is up to his red-tailed hijinks, and this time his behavior turns a wedding topsy-turvy. He knocks off the ladies' fancy hats, sprinkles slugs and toads among the rose petals, and takes a ride down the aisle on the bride's trailing veil. After dancing up a storm, Ralph eats himself sick; on the way home, Sarah has to chastise him for his bad behavior, but once again Ralph weasels his way back into her heart by offering her the bridal bouquet he's nabbed. As usual, Rubel's portrayal of this wicked feline is devilishly enchanting, enough to guarantee a faithful following beyond Rotten Ralph's allotted nine lives. (Picture book. 4-8)
