Irene Davidson Fisher’s, Robbie Raccoon, published by Hidden Brook Press, is a delightful cautionary tale for young children who will certainly enjoy having it read to them. Robbie, like many an older sibling, talks his little brother Ricki into sharing an adventure that is
at first frightening and dangerous, but all is well that ends well. The tale is beautifully illustrated, by Carolyn Johnstone, with delightful expressions on the faces of the two raccoons. The back cover design, featuring seven of these illustrations in various sizes, makes for a truly
attractive picture book.
