It's carnival time for Ralph, Sarah, and Percy, Ralph's cousin! Ralph is ready to play games and win prizes. But perfect Percy has been practicing. He keeps beating Ralph and wooing Sarah with his winnings. Fed up with losing, Ralph decides to cheat his way to victory . . . until Sarah puts a stop to it.

School Library Journal hails Rotten Ralph Helps Out , the first Rotten Ralph Rotten Reader, as a "wise choice for youngsters making the transition from picture books to chapter books." In this feisty new adventure, the world's favorite come-back cat shows Percy and Sarah that all his practice at losing can make him a winner in the end.
