Titles By Andy Rash
If popularity were a score between one and ten, Charlie Drinkwater would be a zero. He's nerdy and unathletic, and to top it all off, he's suddenly morphed into a giant mutant sea creature sometime between first-period science class and third-period English.
Now Charlie's two best friends are treating him like a science project, there's a petition to get him kicked out of school, the cool kids are recruiting him for their clique, and for some reason his parents are acting like everything is perfectly normal. What's a slimy, scaly, seventh-grade creature to do?
Camper is happy as a clam and Clam is a happy camper. When you live in The Happy Book, the world is full of daisies and sunshine and friendship cakes . . . until your best friend eats the whole cake and doesn't save you one bite. Moving from happiness to sadness and everything in between, Camper and Clam have a hard time finding their way back to happy. But maybe happy isn't the goal--being a good friend is about supporting each other and feeling all the feels together.
At once funny and thoughtful, The Happy Book supports social-emotional learning. It's a book to keep young readers company no matter how they're feeling!
But penguins aren’t supposed to be afraid of water, especially not daredevil penguins. He musn’t let his friends know!
Can Archie find a way to soar above the clouds and stay out of the sea?
Author-illustrator Andy Rash has created a hilarious, perfectly paced story about overcoming fear by diving in headfirst. Fans of Dragons Love Tacos by Adam Rubin and Creepy Carrots by Aaron Reynolds will especially flip for the loveable Archie.
Bud is a happy stinkbug, except when it comes to stinking contests.
He always seems to lose to champions like P. U. Bottoms, Lord Stinkington, and The Fumigator.
Every time they make smells like OUTHOUSE, GYM SOCK, and ARMPIT, poor Bud ends up smelling like FLOWERS, or FRESH-BAKED BREAD, or CANDY CANE.
Stinking just isn't Bud's THING. But what IS his thing?
With an ending as fresh as a daisy, and funnier than any funny smell, Andy Rash puts a hilarious spin on a tale of following your nose to happiness.
When being chased by ten little zombies (no matter how cute they are), your only option is to systematically destroy them one by one, or else become zombie number eleven. In this love story wrapped in a tale of zombie mayhem, a resourceful couple flees from and picks off their undead pursuers with fast-paced ingenuity and an entertaining range of zombie-thwarting tools. As the zombies shuffle and stumble their way toward a variety of gruesome ends, our heroes must come up with new ways to escape sticky situations and stay together. This darkly funny illustrated tale—think meets Edward Gorey meets Hallmark—celebrates the romantic side of a zombie plague, with plenty of BRAINS and a lot of heart.
