The Great Ringtail Garbage Caper: 11/25/07
The Great Ringtail Garbage Caper presents a message of environmental protection from the point of view of a clan of desperate but resourceful raccoons.
Over a summer a clan of raccoons learn how to drive a garbage truck to guarantee a food supply for the entire community when the local garbage collectors are too efficient with their pick ups.
The story teaches the importance of sharing the environment with nature while still be entertaining. The way in which the raccoon clan is set up reminded me a bit of the society in The Giver by Lois Lowry.
This book was made into a CBS Storybreak animation by Hanna-Barbera Australia but I haven't been able to find much information about it online. I probably saw the cartoon as a child but I don't remember it.
Thanks for the warm welcome to SheWhoBlogs! I never realized that we are practically neighbors . . . Did you see my house from the top of Mt. Diablo? I look at Mt. Diablo every day from here in Lodi! :-)"
I think the racoon would be replaced by a squirrel over here, we don't have any racoons I only saw them in a zoo, lol !"
