KIRKUS REVIEW

Little Raccoon appears only on the sidelines, often peering up intently at the words which dribble down the page, one or two to the line. Moore has few enough ideas; even in this handful of tiny poems some of her devices begin to pall, particularly the ""surprise"" last verse. But she uses sounds quite effectively--best of all in a rain poem that flows ""wet fur/ wet feather/ weather."" And Little Raccoon's reactions to ""bug burly bumble bee,"" snake and porcupine will be sure to evoke ah's of recognition.
