About the Author

Dan Gutman has always been a baseball fanatic. He played in Little League as a kid, and one of the first magazine articles he ever sold explained the science behind the spitball, the scuffball, and corked bats. When he thought about the T206 Honus Wagner—the most valuable baseball card in the world—he began to write honus & me, his first Baseball Card Adventure.

Dan is also the author of the New York Times bestselling Genius Files series, as well as the internationally bestselling My Weird School series.

Rappy the Rapper is a very cute. Rappy tells the story of how he was born. He thought he could fly. He hurt his head and woke up rapping, so his parents brought him to the hospital. They did all types of tests on him and the doctor came back and said he is normal and was born that way. The whole book is rhyming/rapping and a very cute way to show that someone is a little different but they are still great. BC actually really liked this book.

This looks super cute. My son would love it! He’s really into dinosaurs lately. He keeps telling me that birds and chickens are dinosaurs and impressing me with his dinosaur knowledge. I bet that if I got him this book, he wold read it 100+ times!

Differences make people or raptors what they are.

You share some really good books for my son’s age. He loves dinosaurs and I know he’d love this book. I just wished he would let me read to him more often.
