Francine Poulet Meets the Ghost Raccoon


Francine Poulet Meets the Ghost Raccoon’ and everything the greatest animal control officer in Gizzford County ever knew, flies out the window. Suddenly Francine Poulet’s solidity and certainty are shattered. A ghost raccoon that shimmers and calls her name?

Francine Poulet is the latest in a long line of esteemed animal control officers. She is proud of her lineage. What happens when a shimmering, Francine calling ghost raccoon upends her world? How might she rescale the giddy heights of the ladder of animal control? Can she? Will she?

With gentle humour, considered humanity and insight, and warm interaction, Francine, in the hands of the wonderful Kate DiCamillo, is brought to life. We know her status, practicality and place in the Deckawoo Drive community. Yet we recognise her frailty too.

‘Francine Poulet Meets the Ghost Raccoon‘ is a superb selection for readers of any age, particularly those with less experience. The Tales from Decakwoo Drive series is an outstanding landing stage that lingers and delights. This title stands alone proudly, though it is labelled as a follow up to Leroy Ninker Saddles Up.
