Book review - Hungry Roscoe by David J. Plant

Hungry Roscoe by David J. Plant is about Roscoe the hungry racoon who is fed up with eating rotten junk and leftovers out of the bins in the park where he lives in the middle of a big city.

Hungry Roscoe by David J Plant

What he really wants is some fish or fresh, juicy fruit, and when his friend Benjy suggests trying the zoo Roscoe things it's a great idea. Unfortunately the zookeeper isn't happy when he tries to eat some of the food intended for the animals and boots him out. So Roscoe tries a variety of disguises to sneak his way back into the zoo without success, and then causes a disaster when he lets the mischievous monkeys out of their cage!

There is plenty going on in this funny and entertaining picture book, with its muted yet gorgeous illustrations paired with humourous text. The children loved the different pictures of the animals, and enjoyed tracing Roscoe's routes through the zoo with their fingers.
