Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

*Starred Review* Ralph is a talking dog. And the text of this clever book consists of questions posed to Ralph, the canine answers, and comments from an unseen narrator talking to introduces this amazing pet. Asked �What�s your name?� the dog answers, �RRRALPH/RALPH.� Asked �Where are you?� Ralph responds, �ROOF/ROOF.� Once kids get the joke, they�ll enjoy guessing the dog�s replies to queries such as �What�s on that tree?� and �How�s the path feel on your paws, Ralph?� Created with realia as well as painted and textured papers, the three-dimensional collage illustrations feature zippers for Ralph�s mouth, a metal pop-top for his nose, buttons for the birds� eyes, and actual bark for the tree�s trunk. The pages, colored in hot-pink, grass-green, and pumpkin, magnify the visual energy of the artwork and graphics. Each animal or object pictured shows up distinctly against a bright background, and Ralph�s words, along with the short lines of text, appear in large, bold type. With its appealing jacket art, clever text, and vibrant illustrations, this amusing picture book is a pleasure to read aloud, either individually or in story hour settings. Preschool-Grade 3. --Carolyn Phelan

Review

* "With its appealing jacket art, clever text, and vibrant illustrations, this amusing picture book is a pleasure to read aloud, either individually or in story hour settings."--Booklist, starred review

* "Bold and bright, filled with kid-pleasing riddles and collage illustrations, this is a perfect offering for new readers and storytime. Will these young readers want to create a sequel? Yip! Yip! --Kirkus Reviews, starred review

* "Ever-innovative Ehlert attributes several different words to the family dog...Whether Ralph actually means what he says or not, it’s giggle-worthy; and doubling the fun are Ehlert’s brilliantly composed collages."--The Horn Book, starred review

"What do you do with "groaners," really bad jokes, in this case about dogs? Ehlert has gathered a few and turned them into a colorful, clever picture book.... An excellent selection for sharing one-on-one or reading aloud in a group setting."

--School Library Journal, May 2011

Rrralph is a great read aloud that is sure to appeal to any young dog lover. It's a classic gag done in a simple, charming way that will have any child 2-5 running home to hear their dog talk. Ralph is a cutie, fashioned in the illustrator's trademark collage style. With his pop can tab nose, his button eyes, and his zipper mouth, you just can't help but smile!

There are pages that feature only text on a brightly colored background that ask the questions such as "What's your name?" and "How's the path feel on your paws, Ralph?" The following pages are big illustrations of Ralph answering with his Ralph words: Rrralph! and Rough!. The conversational tone and oversize illustrations make this a natural choice as a story time read aloud. Fun stuff and an enthusiastic recommend.

You may recognize Lois Ehlert's style - she illustrated "Chicka Chicka Boom BOOM," one of our old favorites. This book uses a very bold collage style of illustrations to showcase corny dog jokes, but the book absolutely works.

Get them laughing, keep them reading. Thanks, Lois Ehlert!

I used this eBook with Kindergarteners and had a fun time. The book helped my ESL students with vocabulary for only one of my students knew what bark on the tree was. Students liked reading the different barking sounds with me. Again this is a simple fun book to read a loud with young children.

My daughter's favorite book. This book is full of silly jokes. My daughter LOVES it! I wanted to give it 4 stars because it became annoying after reading it 549 times a day for a month straight, but I felt the HONEST rating was 5 stars because, really, it isn't for me. My daughter would most assuredly give this a 5 star rating. Or, in her toddler counting system "one five seven green"!

We checked this book out from the library and read it constantly for a month. We returned it and I was so glad to see it slide down that book drop. Then, in the children's section... my clever daughter FOUND ANOTHER COPY!!! So, we read it constantly for a second month in a row. This time, I was sneaky and returned it at the satellite book drop at the grocery store. However, I know just how to delight children AND drive my brother crazy- so my 18mo niece will be getting this for xmas this year!
