Overview

Friends. Enemies. And friends again!

This is a story of two friends. Rat and Roach.
They get along great!
Except when Rat makes a mess . . .
Or Roach cooks too fancy . . .
Or Rat HUGS TOO TIGHT!!
In fact, why are these two friends? Rat and Roach aren’t so sure either, but they’re more unhappy when they aren’t friends. Here is a book that shows friendship in a whole new, wonderful, hilarious light.

Praise

Praise for Rat and Roach Friends to the End by David Covell:

“Engaging text [and] bold illustrations…Rat and Roach [is] unusually ugly—and wonderfully appropriately so.” —New York Times Book Review

"In the fine tradition of A. M. Monson’s Wanted: Best Friend (Dial, 1997) or Carolyn Crimi’s Don’t Need Friends (Doubleday, 1999) … Covell tells this familiar story with unusual visual and verbal humor and a delightfully caustic lack of sentimentality. His artwork—pictures, font, layout, down to the most minute detail—is well worth a bunch of perusals." —School Library Journal
