Raccoons and Ripe Corn

written and illustrated by Jim Arnosky

Hungry raccoons feast at night in a field of ripe corn.

A gentle slice-of-life story that follows a raccoon family one night feeding in a field of corn. The text is very simple and printed in a large font. The bright pastel illustrations done with watercolor pencils are uncluttered and support the text well.
