This book is available in a digital format only. 
The “cute-as-a-button” babies grow up — in the city, at least — to be not-so-cute nocturnal marauders that find their way into garbage bins and nest in our attics, where they cause unspeakable mayhem. Raccoons will, and do, eat anything and everything except, so far, humans. In Raccoons: Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Them but Were Too Busy Cleaning Up Their Mess to Ask, veteran Star journalist Jim Rankin offers a hilarious excursion into the world of the masked critters, introducing readers to a certain Mr. Davey (Crockett-my-butt) Raccoon. Learn more about the mammal that makes your nights hellish.
