"This real-life adventure of raising five motherless baby raccoons is a beautiful combination of story and lesson, and will certainly capture a child's heart and imagination."

Raccoon Tales

Raccoon Tales

Raccoon Tales takes readers on a year-long adventure with five orphaned baby raccoons. What will happen to Shadow, Meeko, RC, Lucy, and Chatter?

Author Joy DeKok shares this true life journey in the first year of the lives of these little ''washbears.''

Written in easy-to-read verse, she tells their story with tenderness and energy.

Readers will leave the story glad they came, knowing more about raccoons, and what a wild animal rescue and release looks like. Illustrator Leslie Helen Colwin's delightful illustrations bring the story to life.
