Rude Ramsey and the Roaring RadishesBook - 2003
A carrot-topped lad named Rude Ramsay yearns to escape the confines of his miserable life in a "ramshackle rectangular residence," surrounded by an impenetrable rampart with his insufferable relatives, Ron, Rollo, and Ruby. Worse than their rum consumption and relentless playing of rock & roll records is the horrible food they prepare: roach-riddled rice, rancid raisins, and reeking reindeer rinds are just a few of their specialties. Aided by his sole friend, Ralph the red-nosed rat, Rude Ramsay escapes the imposing rampart in search of better culinary offerings, encountering a patch of roaring radishes, a romantic rectory, and their owner, the raven-haired Rillah. With each other's encouragement and help, Ramsay, Ralph, and Rillah manage to find happiness on the sunny side of the rampart.
