Two days after her kits are born, a mother raccoon leaves her nest in the hollow tree to go out in search of food. Her quest takes her through a nearby suburban backyard where garbage cans hold the promise of a feast. A series of small natural incidents provide a sense of drama in an appealing story, illustrated with realistic full-color paintings and packaged with a cassette tape. (Ages 3-6)
