Review: Raccoon Rampage

September 6, 2014

Raccoon Rampage

The Hole-In-The-Tree Gang only has to pull off a couple of robberies so they’ll be set for the winter.  When they get caught they decide they better hightail it to the city.  They discover city life isn’t for them and have to figure out a way to get back home.  They arrive just in time to thwart a real robber and become heroes.

Raccoon Rampage by Andrew Cope is a cute book for early readers.  The raccoons need to survive the winter and take the easy way out to get supplies.  When they get caught, they decide to leave town only to discover the city isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.  They work together to find their way home and discover where they really belong.

When I started Raccoon Rampage I had some trouble telling the characters apart so it took me a little while to get into the flow of the story.  Once I did, I enjoyed it.  The storyline is fun and the illustrations are cute.  It’s part of the Awesome Animals series and is sure to delight young readers.

    Sounds cute and it has a good message. I wonder if kids get the characters confused or just adults!
