School for Bandits by Hannah Shaw
No niceness allowed...
Alfred A Knopf sent me a copy of this picture book for review (thank you). It has been published so you can grab a copy at your local bookstore.
I guess I must just be a big kid because this story really tickled me. Ralph is a good raccoon, which is bad. Raccoons aren't good, they're bandits!
He's polite, clean and tidy and well behaved. Such a disappointment for his parents. So they sent him to Bandit School, where he fails all his classes.
Any child who has felt like he/she didn't fit in well will enjoy this story. It's fun story for everyone to read. Why not get a copy and follow along on Ralph's journey towards "improvement"...
