Raccoons in the Corn is a tale to be enjoyed by kids and the adults who read to them. Any sweet corn grower knows that raccoons love the stuff. The ornery critters wait until the crop is perfectly ripe and strike with military precision, leaving the frustrated gardener licking his lips over what might have been the best crop ever. The story begins with Farmer B. scanning seed catalogs to plan his spring corn planting. Details of the planting and defensive strategies help build suspense. How will Farmer B. cope if all his best laid plans fail? This is a fun “read to me” story or “read yourself” at about grade 4 reading level.
