Roscoe is a hungry raccoon and he’s fed up with eating rotten junk out of the bins. What he wouldn’t give for a lovely bit of fish or some fresh, juicy fruit – and where better to find food than at the zoo! An excellent idea. Except for the grumpy zookeeper who’s intent on keeping Roscoe OUT. But Roscoe’s determined to eat, and sure enough he’s come up with a plan to disguise himself as a zoo animal . . . What could possibly go wrong?

Mayhem ensues in this deliciously funny tale about a crafty raccoon by author/illustrator David J. Plant

Industry Reviews
"In this debut picture book, Plant pours on the charm, with retro-looking sorbet-colored art and a perfectly paced story."
--The The New York Times

"Done in a retro style with flatly applied, low-contrast colors, the cartoon illustrations are well-stocked with active, comically expressive figures. The narrative's poker-faced tone (" 'That's not for pests like you!' growled the zookeeper. He was not a good-tempered man") adds a similarly antique flavor."
--Kirkus Reviews

The subdued color palette and uncomplicated illustrations lend a vintage to the page, but this thoroughly modern story is utterly charming and will delight young readers.
--Summer Hayes, Booklist
