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
