In cities or forests, raccoon make themselves at home. These animals find all sorts of mischief. One even climbed a tall construction crane to eat scraps the operator left behind. Raccoons can scamper down trees head first, swim across ponds and use their paws to pick fruit or unscrew jar lids. This book reveals the animal behind the mask.

Includes a table of contents, index, sidebars, and full of extraordinary photography throughout.
