BOOK REVIEW: The Infamous Ratsos by Kara LaReau & Illustrated by Matt Myers


Louie and Ralphie Ratso are no softies! Readers are sure to chuckle as the determined Ratso brothers’ plans to act tough go hilariously awry.

Louie and Ralphie Ratso’s dad, Big Lou, always says that there are two kinds of people: those who are tough and those who are soft. Louie and Ralphie are tough, tough, tough, just like Big Lou, and they’re going to prove it. But every time they try to show just how tough they are, the Ratso brothers end up accidentally doing good deeds instead. What’ll Big Lou do when he finds out they’ve been acting like softies all over the Big City? Perfect for emerging and reluctant readers, this clever and surprisingly warmhearted chapter book shows that being tough all the time can be really tough.

REVIEW BY: Angelina, age 9 years, 6 months


This book was fantastic! I laughed so much and had a great time reading it!

It is about rats that are trying to be tough! They give a sandwich to a girl that is nasty and she loved it. They put soap on a window and the lady liked them and called them helpful. 

My favorite character is Louie because he is cool. 

My favorite part is when they put soap on the window because it was funny and they weren't expecting the reaction they got! 

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 8 to 11.
