Louie Ratso tries to help super-cool Chuck Wood win the heart of his friend Fluffy Rabbitski in the third installment of the Infamous Ratsos.
Chuck Wood is the most popular kid in school, and Louie Ratso can’t believe that Chuck has asked him for help! Chuck likes Louie’s friend Fluffy Rabbitski, and he wants Louie to help him get Fluffy to notice him. As for Ralphie Ratso, he can’t believe that his brother wants to spend all his time with Chuck instead of with him. Meanwhile, despite Louie and Chuck’s attempts to get Fluffy's attention, she has eyes for only one thing: her garden. But there may be hope. As their father, Big Lou, tells his boys, the best way to get someone to like you is to show that you’re interested in what they like. After all, that’s how Big Lou won over Mama Ratso years ago. Can Louie help Chuck find a way into Fluffy’s heart? And will Ralphie find a way to let his brother know how much he misses him?

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Louie and Ralphie Ratso are supposed to be working together to write a poem for their school's poetry contest, but Louie gets distracted when popular Chuck Wood asks Louie for help getting Louie's friend Fluffy to like him. As Chuck and Louie work on Project Fluffy, Ralphie's left on his own and misses his big brother. My kids love reading about the Ratso brothers. This is a fun new edition to the series. The Ratsos are endearing characters, and the book has a good message about friendship. Although the book is marketed to kids, even as an adult, I had fun reading it to them (which is NOT true of all of the books I read to them). I read an ARC via #NetGalley. All opinions are my own.
