Mark Turetsky narrates tough--just the way the Ratso brothers like to be. In Book One, Louie and Ralphie do their best to do mean deeds, including taking the hat of a large rat, shoveling snow in front of a door, and soaping windows. As Big Lou, the boys' gruff and presumably just as tough father, Turetsky surprises listeners with a range of emotions and sage counsel. In Book Two, Turetsky depicts anxiety and remorse--new emotions for the two brothers. With their gang of buddies, the brothers come to grips with having made assumptions about a schoolmate and learning how to conquer fear while transforming an almost vacant lot. In both books, Turetsky is straightforward and evenly modulated as he enunciates the repetitions with relish that emphasizes the humor. His young characters are distinctive, spunky, and spot-on.
