The Troublemaker (Lauren Castillo)
The beginning of this story looks like there's a little boy who is causing trouble. Turns out he is getting blamed for the work of a tricky raccoon!
We will have to remember this one when we are doing our City Wildlife unit in Open Court.
Bored and restless on a summer day, a little boy steals his sister’s bunny and sends it on an adventure. He is well satisfied with the results—until his own stuffed animal disappears. Could it be that he is not the only troublemaker around . . . ?
A case of sibling rivalry is neatly resolved with the “assistance” of a hilarious raccoon in Lauren Castillo’s warm, simple text and gorgeous classic illustrations.
