My First Review!


Tonight I read my very first official review of COOL DADDY RAT. I was really nervous, since I’ve heard these things can rip your heart out. But the Kirkus review called the book “Terrific Fun!” It also said, among other things: “Crow’s rhyming text pulses with liberally laced scat—“huggy wuggy boo bat”—and syncopated sound words: Zow! ... Daddy Rat, from his Diz-patch and glorious crimson double-breasted jacket down to his toothpick legs in hip slip-ons, is a hoot. Daddy and Ace hail a cab for home and well-earned rest, but kids might well request repeat scat-alouds.”

Ya-HOOO! I’ll be scatting around the house tonight.
