Description

In Rude Ramsey and the Roaring Radishes, bestselling author Margaret Atwood offers a delightfully ridiculous tale that explores the virtues of resisting restrictions. Rude Ramsey has reached the end of his rope! Sick of dining on rock-hard rice, rubbery ribs, wrinkled ravioli and raw rhinoceros, Ramsey and Ralph (the red-nosed rat) resolve to leave their rectangular residence on a quest for a more refreshing repast. Along the way, they encounter the raven-haired Rillah, a romantic rectory, and a patch of roaring radishes. Together, Ramsey, Ralph, and Rillah manage to reveal that, sometimes, the grass truly is greener on the other side of the rampart. With Atwood's rollicking text, accompanied by Dusan Petricic's hilarious and insightful illustrations, Rude Ramsey and the Roaring Radishes is a rare and rewarding treat for readers of all ages.
