Overview
A 2017 Theodor Seuss Geisel Honor Book

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.

Louie and Ralphie Ratso are determined to be as tough as their truck-driver father, but the rats’ efforts go hilariously awry in this funny, thoughtful, and smart chapter book. In episodic escapades, they steal a classmate’s hat, make a new student a sandwich from the “worst foods they can find,” and soap a neighbor’s windows, only to be met with gratitude. “Pickled mushrooms and beets and eggplant, just like my nana used to make!” gushes gleeful sandwich recipient Fluffy Rabbitski. LaReau packs substantial comedy and poignant emotion into each chapter (the boys’ mother has “been gone for a little while now”), adeptly amplified by Myers’s spot art. Ages 5–8.
