Francine Poulet Meets the Ghost Raccoon
Tales from Deckawoo Drive, Volume Two

author: Kate DiCamillo

illustrator: Chris Van Dusen

series name:
Tales from Deckawoo Drive
Francine Poulet is the greatest animal control officer in Gizzford County, hailing from a long line of animal control officers. “The genuine article,” Francine’s dad always called her. She is never scared — until, that is, she’s faced with a screaming raccoon that may or may not be a ghost. Maybe Francine isn’t cut out to be an animal control officer after all! Join a cast of familiar characters — Frank, Stella, Mrs. Watson, and Mercy the porcine wonder—for some riotous raccoon wrangling in the second tale from Deckawoo Drive.
“Francine Poulet will wrangle readers’ hearts along with rascally wildlife in this standout early chapter book.” — Booklist (starred review)
