Meet Little Raccoon.
"Little Raccoon was little, but he was brave."
Little Raccoon is a precocious and curious young creature. Whether facing down the scary thing in the pool, exploring the world beyond his familiar woods with a pair of young skunks, or baby-sitting two pesky chipmunks, Little Raccoon manages to find himself in all sorts of predicaments. But Little Raccoon is also brave, and his bravery-not to mention his irrepressible happy spirit-saves the day every time.
These three adventures of Little Raccoon, originally published as three separate books, are gathered in one collection and reillustrated in lively and humorous black-and-white drawings.

Lilian Moore is the author of many beloved children's books, including I'll Meet You at the Cucumbers. Ms. Moore lives in Seattle, Washington.
Doug Cushman has illustrated over eighty books for children, many of which he also wrote, including the popular Aunt Eater series of books and the New York Times bestseller What Dads Can't Do by Douglas Wood. The natural landscapes in the illustrations of Little Raccoon were inspired by the beautiful forests and rivers near Mr. Cushman's home in Northern California.
Gr. 2-4. First published separately in the 1960s and 1970s, the three stories in this short, amusing chapter book feature a little raccoon who is becoming increasingly self-reliant. In "The Thing in the Pool," Little Raccoon looks into a pool of water and is frightened by his reflection until he learns to befriend it. "The Outside World" shows him venturing beyond the wood for the first time to explore the mysteries outside a house where humans live. In "No Trouble at All," he looks after two frisky chipmunks who run circles around him until he learns to take charge. Cushman's appealing black-and-white illustrations reflect the warmth and humor of the stories. A good choice for children just venturing into the juvenile fiction section. Carolyn Phelan
