One Minute Rotten Ralph

[ ?posts_id=1669092&dest=18381]

Rotten Ralph’s Rotten Christmas, by Jack Gantos, reviewed.  This book, if taken at face value, teaches children that they can be awful, jealous, angry, petulent, and rotten, and parents will love them anyway.  Which is basically true.  On a deeper level, I think it explores and questions the ways that children deal with sometimes difficult task of dealing with sudden changes in ones life.  🙂  I’m just kidding – it’s just a funny Christmas book about a wretched cat.
