Francine thinks she can do anything and catch any animal, that is until she met the ghost raccoon. It is unlike any animal. It screams, and it might even be a ghost. Francine can't seem to catch it. After a devastating fall that leaves her left leg and right arm in a cast and her neck in a brace, Francine gives up. That's when Frank and Stella come into the picture. While Francine is working as a cashier at Clyde's Bait, Feed, Tackle, and Animal Necessities, Frank and Stella come into the store. Frank reminds Stella of who she is. All Stella really wants is some candy. Frank tells Francine where the ghost raccoon is. Will Francine find the courage to face the raccoon again? Can she overcome her fear and insecurity to do what she loves?


As strong and as solid as a refrigerator, Francine is hard not to love. Chris Van Dusen's illustrations really bring DiCamillo's story to life. You gasp, laugh, cringe, and lick your lips with Francine through the whole story. This book is almost impossible to put down! Francine such a character, and immediately after you read the first page, you love her cocky attitude and her confidence. I recommend this book for young readers who like a short, funny story with easy words and a great plot.
