Book (bookworm_1999) | 1 comments In the early 1970s I remember reading a story about three raccoons and a fox [called Renard?] It was a smallish book and had coloured illustrations. From memory I can visualise the fox holding a frying pan and there was something about a boat trip. I've been trying unsuccessfully to find further information so thanks for any help anyone can give.

"Three little raccoons find an abandoned bathtub and try to guess what it was designed for."

Macaroon? Okay that doesn't really sound like your book, but now I want to read it.

"A raccoon decides to spend the winter in a child's warm home--a disagreeable child, so that his departure in the spring will not be regretted--but he selects such a nasty, spoiled little girl he can't help trying to reform her."

lol Corinne. I KNOW I've added a good 300 to MY TBR mountain range, so I'm sure that Lobstergirl has added a few too.

Oh, and an fyi--Reynard is French for "fox". That's why you see it used a lot for fox-type creatures.

Honestly not that many. I'm pretty disciplined. But I can't resist anything illustrated by Evaline Ness, who used to be married to crimefighter Eliot Ness!

They do look like lovely illustrations. I have a great fondness for Trina Schart-Hyman. I've uploaded alot of the covers here on Goodreads for her. I still have a few to hunt down.
