The journey of Fancine Poulet's emotions in this engaging tale runs an entire gamut -- from confidence, to fear, to doubt, to resignation, to cautious optimism, to trust, and eventually, restoration. And this journey's joyful end shows how kindness and encouragement from a friend are just the antidote to healing her wounded self-esteem. Realistic, lively illustrations skillfully capture every decisive expression to clearly convey the importance of each moment. DiCamillo's masterful balance of humor, delightful word choice, and redemptive character development somehow leaves readers feeling hope and self-worth.
Publisher Summary
"Francine Poulet will wrangle readers' hearts along with rascally wildlife in this standout early chapter book." -- Booklist (starred review)

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.
