The Infamous Ratsos: Project Fluffy

By Kara LaReau
Illustrated by Matt Myers

“As with the previous entries, the characters act as stand-ins for young readers navigating real-world situations, this time concentrating on friendship, loyalty, and responsibility.” — The Horn Book

In the third adventure of the Ratso brothers, Louie Ratso can’t believe it when the most popular kid in school, Chuck Wood, asks him for help. Chuck likes Louie Ratso’s friend Fluffy, and he wants Louie to help him get Fluffy’s attention. As for Ralphie Ratso, he can’t believe his brother is spending all his time with Chuck. Meanwhile, as Louie and Chuck attempt to get Fluffy’s attention, she only has eyes for her garden. It’s a good thing Big Lou has some advice about wanting someone to like you!

  • Louie and Ralphie Ratso, stars of the Geisel Honor-winning The Infamous Ratsos, written by Kara LaReau and illustrated by Matt Myers, are back again with their third adventure in paperback
  • Both very funny and surprisingly touching, The Infamous Ratsos series hits a pitch-perfect sweet spot for newly independent readers, especially the more reluctant ones.
  • Offers young readers a very funny as well as sensitive approach to friendships and crushes in elementary school.
