Andrew and the Secret Gallery
By Matthew Diggins
Red Cygnet Press

If I asked you to think of a rotten kid, an image or the name of one particularly misbehaving or disobedient child would probably flash in your mind. That child has nothing on Andrew. His best and only friends are toads. He moves from one rotten deed to the next, all illustrated in disgusting detail, until the day his class takes a trip to the natural history museum. The sign commanding all to stay out of the Gallery of the rotten holds no sway over Andrew. Through that door, Andrew will get his just deserts as his mother has always warned him. Matthew Diggins' illustrations of this rotten demesne leave the reader almost smelling the stench and very happy to leave Andrew to experience a life of complete rottenness.
