With a topical environmental theme, this rhyming book will charm its readers. Rosie Raccoon sets off one dark night with a sack on her back. At the first big house, in she goes, and immediately sees a glittering prize. “Blaahh!” goes the burglar alarm, but Rosie scoots off safely across the lawn. On to the next house, and she baffles the infra-red beams as she fills her swag bag. Hot on her trail come the police, Officer Skunk eventually making the arrest as Rosie is caught red handed. But the contents of her swag bag astound all. Whilst the houses Rosie visited are being taped off …CRIME SCENE DO NOT ENTER… she explains to the bewildered police that she hasn’t robbed jewels or artwork worth millions. All she has taken is litter, and things from bins! She still gets a scolding for breaking into houses and taking things without permission, but Rosie is delighted. She is ready for her day of upcycling – just LOOK what she has made! The bouncing rhymes make this an excellent book for reading aloud, and it is imperative that readers go back to the first page to examine the illustrations in detail… yes, there is a bin with a glittering honey jar poking out! The partnership of author and illustrator already has a successful clutch of picture books to their credit and Rosie the Raccoon Robber/Upcycler is a great addition to their collection.
