Overview
Deckawoo Drive's intrepid animal control officer meets her match--or does she? A funny, heartfelt, and fast-paced romp from Kate DiCamillo.

Francine Poulet is the greatest animal control officer in Gizzford County. She hails from a long line of animal control officers. She's battled snakes, outwitted squirrels, and stared down a bear. "The genuine article," Francine's dad always called her. She is never scared - until, that is, she's faced with a screaming raccoon that may or may not be a ghost. Maybe Francine isn't cut out to be an animal control officer after all But the raccoon is still on the loose, and the folks on Deckawoo Drive need Francine back. Can she face her fears, round up the raccoon, and return to the ranks of animal control? Join a cast of familiar characters - Frank, Stella, Mrs. Watson, and Mercy the porcine wonder - for some riotous raccoon wrangling on Deckawoo Drive.

DiCamillo devotes her second Tales from Deckawoo Drive story to animal control officer Francine Poulet, previously seen in Mercy Watson Thinks Like a Pig. Fearless and highly decorated, Francine may have met her match when she is called in to catch a shimmering “ghost raccoon” that seems to be screaming her name. A three-story “tumble” leads to a crisis of confidence, but Francine is back in the animal control game before long. Like Leroy Ninker Saddles Up, it’s a witty yet tender reminder of the importance of being one’s best self. You do you, Francine. Art not seen by PW. Ages 6–9. Author’s agent: Holly McGhee, Pippin Properties. Illustrator’s agent: Steven Malk, Writers House. (Aug.)
