This is a modern fantasy book about a raccoon who is too polite. In order to make Ralph Raccoon into a better raccoon bandit his parents send him to school. At school Ralph is only supposed to be rude and impolite. However, Ralph has a hard time with this and doesn't do very well in school. Finally as Ralph leaves for winter break his teacher gives his class an assignment to fill up a bag with loot. Ralph uses his politeness to fill his whole bag and becomes the winner and most prized student in class. This book is funny and creative while teaching students an important lesson, it's better to be polite.

Ralph the raccoon is not a normal raccoon that is messy and rude, he is clean and doesn't like to steal. Since he is not a normal raccoon, his parents decide to take him to Bandit School so he can learn how to be a real raccoon. ( )

No well-behaved raccoons live in my neighborhood. Fun story and illustrations. ( )

I absolutely love this book because it teaches manners! Ralph the raccoon isn't like other raccoons because he doesn't like to be messy or steal. He likes to have nice manners and he soons finds out that they pay off too! ( )

A cute addition to the manners make good category. There's lots of little humor in the illustrations. A good read aloud for older kids, who will understand why Ralph's parents and teacher are disappointed in his too-nice behavior. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0375867686, Hardcover)

Ralph Raccoon looks perfectly normal. But he doesn't act normal at all. He's disturbingly well behaved, clean and tidy, shockingly polite, and he even brushes his teeth!  Mr. and Mrs. Raccoon are worried—how will Ralph ever become a great raccoon bandit like Grandpa Cutlass or Uncle Whiskers?  It's time Ralph learned some bad manners . . . at Bandit School.

Ralph has no chance of winning the "Best Bandit in School" competition—he's not very bandit-like at all. But sometimes good manners can be useful, and Ralph just might surprise everyone--including himself.

Ralph Raccoon is too polite so his parents send him to Bandit School to learn to behave like a properly bad raccoon.
