This book is really intricately illustrated, full of both drawings and pictures that makes the "trash" in the book beautiful and interesting. This is the story of a raccoon leaving home and moving into a new house. After gathering odds and ends from the dump to decorate the house he starts to feel lonely. So he goes looking for a friend and finds "mud ball" who becomes his friend and housemate. This story illustrates the process of growing up and meeting new people through lines of rhyming dialogue and creative descriptions. This would be a great story to use in the classroom when talking about personal issues and times of transitions in students lives. I would love this book for my classroom and future students.

A sweet raccoon character stars in this endearing tale of unexpected friendship from the creator of the bestselling Skippyjon Jones

Dewey Bob Crockett is a durn cute raccoon who lives by himself in a house filled to the brim with the wonderful objects he collects. Buttons, wheels, furniture and bricabrac adorn his cozy quarters and keep him busy as he finds and fixes, turning trash into treasures. But there’s something missing from Dewey’s collections—a friend! He tries gathering up some critters and bringing them home in his shopping cart, but that doesn’t work out so well. In the end, a friend does come Dewey’s way, and, with a little DIY help from this clever raccoon, returns again and again.

Combining art and heart with storytelling genius and a lilting twang, Judy Schachner's tale of unexpected friendship will delight readers young and old.

Dewey Bob Crockett is a young raccoon who loves to collect shiny things, but he discovers that it is a lot harder for a raccoon to collect--and keep--a friend.
