The Red-Hot Rattoons

by Elizabeth Winthrop

This title is now available on MP3-CD from Brilliance Audio for only $14.99. (Please go to Brilliance or to order - we no longer sell directly.)

What do you when your world is turned upside down? If you're five young rats with music in your soul and dancing in your blood, you head for the Hollow, and the chance to dance at the Boom Boom Room.

But not even wise old Uncle Switchtail can prepare Benny, Fletcher, Ella, Woody and Monk for the dangers they'll face on the way to their dream. The kids have talent, grit and determination. Will that be enough to survive unexpected treachery, and a trip to the world of the humans?

The Red-Hot Rattoons is filled with laughs, hair-breadth escapes, and enchanting characters. Even better, it vibrates with the key ingredients of all great backstage stories: heart, hope, and the unique joy that comes from chasing a dream with every ounce of strength and courage you possess.

"The Red-Hot Rattoons is a perfect story for family listening. The story is uplifting, the characters are lovable, and it is easy to empathize with them. Best yet, the characters in this book are brought to life by actors who are so engrossed in their roles that you forget they are actors, and not the characters that they are portraying. Highly recommended!"

"Full Cast Audio gives this novel its usual superb attention to detail, with jazzy background music and clever touches such as having Juan the alpaca voiced by a Latino actor. The author capably narrates her enjoyable and spirited story in which the voice actors are uniformly excellent."
    — School Library Journal
"Winthrop is assisted by Full Cast Audio’s outstanding narrators. Each brings a quirky addition to this success story. Winthrop also includes some excellent life lessons."
