As is a present for Aunt Ruth's birthday, Rosie Raccoon is determined to offer four roses tied with a rainbow ribbon. As she and her big brother, Robert, ramble through the forest toward Aunt Ruth's house, Rosie's flowers mysteriously disappear, rose by rose. Is there a rose robber in the forest?

In this lighthearted alliterative romp -- written especially for fans of the letter R -- Pamela Duncan Edwards and Henry Cole tell the story of a little raccoon who discovers that sharing with others brings its own rewards.
