"To thine own self be true."

The cat show is coming to town and Rotten Ralph is hungry for glory - and desperate to defeat his perfect cousin Percy, whatever it takes. According to Sarah, Ralph has to stop being a lazy scoundrel and follow her regimen to achieve poise and polish. When the competition gets under way, Ralph pretends to be something he's not, and fails. Just in time, Ralph decides victory can be his only if he stops pretending and really lets the fur fly.

With eye-popping art and an ingeniously comic text, this fourth book in the appealing series for beginning readers follows everyone's favorite red-furred rascal on his path to a wholly satisfying last laugh
