Read in January, 2004

One of the best laugh out loud books I have ever read on a plane (or anywhere else). Ralph is a baby genius that epitomizes the phrase "silence is golden". An arrogant smart-ass father and a gentle perhaps too naive mother make for a believable run away train of a story. Like Percival Everett's other novels this too is filled with action and adventure on a physical and intellectual level. Better than the movie "Baby's Day Out", the actions of this child make you continuously roar from his creative, philosophical and humorous thoughts and actions. Ralph's desires for basic abilities makes you know Everett must have really did his research on child development. I wonder how this book could fit into a graduate course on child development. It would probably really be a hit! hmmmmmmm???
