Rotten to the core!

When Sarah serves up a healthy, home-cooked meal chock-full of fruits and vegetables, Rotten Ralph turns up his nose and refuses to eat. With those overflowing, back-alley trash cans in mind, he has more exciting dinner plans on his menu. Garbage for dinner? Uh-oh! Rotten Ralph's bad eating habits are about to make him feel rotten for real.

Rotten Ralph doesn't want to eat his vegetables, so Sarah sends him to bed without dinner. She warns him not to raid the refrigerator. Ralph knows he won't because there's no good food in there anyway. After Sarah tucks him in, Ralph sneaks out to the alley and rummages through the trash to find some tasty treats. He eats a green chicken wing, squishy squid, furry fish, a hunk of blue cheesecake, and a carton of chunky chocolate milk. Just as expected, he gets a huge stomach ache. When Ralph wak ...more

Jack Gantos strikes again with another awesome book!
Oh, Rotten Ralph! Delighting young readers with gross out humor and bad behavior. Kids who love Rotten Ralph will more than likely enjoy Captain Underpants as step up chapter books.

In this early reader, Rotten Ralph eats a bunch of nasty stuff from the trash cans and ends up at the vet's office. He learns his lesson about healthy eating and ends up making a full recovery.

Teaching tip: Discuss the term homesick.

My four-year-old absolutely LOVES Rotten Ralph, all of a sudden. I'm not really sure why, as they aren't necessarily the best-written stories out there, but I suppose any book containing a cat drinking 'chunky chocolate milk' at least wins points on the gross-out level.
This would be for an advanced early reader or a child ready for first chapter. The series would especially appeal to kids who like some gross humor and fans of cats, naughty bad-tempered cats:) --Rachel

High points for the sheer disgustingness of Ralph's diet. No one's favorite Ralph book, though.
