When Randolph Turned Rotten by Charise Mericle Harper - review

When Randolph Turned Rotten, a story by Charise Mericle Harper

Love Charise Mericle Harper. Love Flush: The Scoop on Poop Throughout the Ages, love Fashion Kitty, love love love The Monster Show: Everything You Never Knew About Monsters.

Her sense of humor and faux-naive maximalist illustration style are to love. And When Randolph Turned Rotten is the best yet! Every panel, every page will make my kids helpless with laughter. The moment when Randolph turns, he goes from Best Friend Randolph, with 'rainbow-filled-with-love-insides' (there's an arrow pointing to where his insides are), to Nasty Randolph, with 'stinky rotten insides' (and also, 'mad hands'). Spoiler: he turns back.
