INFORMATIVE AND ENTERTAINING Nov 26, 2005
Harriett, a lovable raccoon, is not only homeless, she's also harried and hapless from time to time. You see, she's now on her own. She lived with assorted siblings in a small place, but as she grew older it was time for her to find a home of her own. Harriett's mom packed a knapsack for her and off she went.
One house looked especially appealing to her, and she thought it must have a nice, warm attic. Unfortunately, the homeowners didn't particularly welcome raccoon company, and Harriett was captured in a cage. She was taken to another building, which turned out to be an artist's studio. Can you imagine what a playful raccoon might do with paint?
Obviously, it's time for Harriett to make tracks again. Where will she find a home of her own?
Mary Haverfield's warm and amusing watercolor painting are perfect companions for this story of a young animal on her own. In addition several pages with interesting facts about raccoons are included.
"Harriett the Homeless Raccoon" is both entertaining and informative - recommended for children age 4 through 8.
