About the book

Fox and Raccoon live in a quiet little corner of Juniper Hollow.  They have been best friends and neighbours forever and love spending each day together.  They play games and often take a time out to just lay in the grass and relax.  Ahhhhhh!

One day things change.  Raccoon comes calling on his good friend and finds that Fox is a very very busy lady and certainly not ready to play the day away with him.  He immediately steps up and helps her with all her chores and errands that she is juggling so they can spend time together like usual.  Each time he comes back fulfilling her requests she has moved on to another project.  Poor Raccoon wonders if they will ever play today at all?  Why is Fox so busy?  What is she up to that he doesn't know about?  

Finally he discovers she is preparing a wonderful surprise exclusively for her best best... Raccoon himself!!!  He is over-the-moon happy and grateful to have such a wonderful bestie who cares for him so much.  

The illustrations are detailed and oh so beautiful. Lesley-Anne has created adorable felted animals and fanciful paper sets that invite the reader to come along and be part of life in Juniper Hollow.  She has designed a world that kids will want to visit again and again.  

This is the first book in a picture book series.  "Fox and Raccoon" highlights the themes of friendship, sharing, working together, generosity and kindness.  I highly recommend this book.
