From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3-- A disappointing effort from Cole. Errol is a scruffy rat from the city school. "He was bad at math," as well as spelling, science, and art. But at the end of the day he rushed home to practice sports. ". . .he was really good at sports"--so good that he becomes his school's representative at the Inter-school Ratathalon. His competitors from the more prestigious schools remove a warning sign with the result that Errol has an accident on his bicycle and ends up in the hospital with a broken foot, arm, and a bandaged nose. He begins weight training with his tail; with his super-strong tail catapulting him over the bar, he wins the high jump. The connection between "Ratathalon" and marathon will not be automatic to young readers. The message that someone can be slow at school but excel at sports is a stereotype that doesn't need further reinforcement. The names of Errol's rivals are so difficult to pronounce, i.e., "Jasintha O'Wiska from St. Rattingund's Convent," that the humor will be lost. The watercolors of the personified rats are expressive and interesting, but cannot redeem the lack-luster text. --Sharron McElmeel, Cedar Rapids Community Schools, IA
