Raccoon Rescue

“I thoroughly enjoyed this exciting, sometimes harrowing story about the individual lives of this family of raccoons.  This story entertainingly winds through the lives of young raccoons growing up in a suburban community and in the course of that storytelling reviews and imparts life lessons that are universal to animal and human alike.”

— John Griffin, Director of Urban Wildlife, Humane Society of the United States

When a human child kidnaps their baby sister Renae to keep as a pet, the only thing raccoon siblings Roxy and Rufus want is to get Renae back to their den where she belongs. Will the lessons their Mama has taught them be enough to guide them on their dangerous rescue mission?

The first in the Living Wild Side by Side series, Raccoon Rescue is an illustrated chapter book that shows how similar wildlife families really can be to human families.
