A Julia Eccleshare Pick of the Month June 2022
Armed with a torch, Rosie Raccoon sets off with her huge swag bag and takes a few sparkling gems from the homes of Bear, Flamingo and Snake and then from all the other houses she passes. The cops are soon after her with their sirens blaring…But, when they catch up with her what do they find? Rosie’s bag is full of junk. She’s been stealing all kinds of shiny old stuff to recycle and turn into new!
There’s a good eco message at the heart of this story about the wrongs of taking what is not yours!

Will says he came up with all the good jokes in that chapter! Do have a read of Lou's books and ...More About Lou Kuenzler
