Wesley Raccoon: Captain John's Social

Very cute children’s stories. The illustrations are really colorful. This is fun to read and yet has a point... “people can come in all sizes and shapes and be our friends”. Every children’s book doesn’t have to come with a deep meaning but there are so many ways to make them fun and help children learn something at the time. Always makes the book more valuable to me.
I have to say I think some people might feel that the print being on top of the illustrations make it more difficult to read. I could see their point at times, but it didn’t detract much. Nor would it keep me from reading it to a child.
read an excerpt...
Wesley is afraid of strangers, they always try to chase him away. He was very careful not to be seen, hiding in between the flowers on the streets and behind the garbage in alleyways.
He was starting to get tired from his long morning of searching for food and keeping out of sight when he noticed the brightly coloured boats docked along the canal.
Wesley loves boats, especially colourful ones! There were lots of bright coloured boats gently bobbing up and down in the canal water. There were big boats and small, old boats and new, but what caught his eye was an old houseboat nestled just past the weeping willow tree on the other side of the canal. He scurried over to get a closer look.
