Raccoons wreak havoc on a town during the night, rummaging through garbage cans, stealing food and then running off into the hills to enjoy their loot. By the author of The Secret Circus.

McMillan Palgrave

When the sun has gone down and the town has gone to sleep, the racoon bandits prowl through the night. With masks parmanently in play,
They sneak and they creep.
Doing just what they please.
The thieves snatch, run, and escape--always careful not to get caught.

Having discovered Ms. Wright when she wrote the utterly odd and charming The Secret Circus, Bandits proves to be an evocative follow-up. As amusing as it is to read (and it is amusing) Wright's original eclectic style also makes this one of the stranger and yet more beautiful recent picture books out there. A funny mix of unreliable narration and sweet family life, these bandits are the ones you'll think of from here on in whenever you spot a raccoon's telltale face.

ELIZABETH RAMSEY BIRD Jan 10, 2012

"When the sun goes down and the moon comes up, beware of the bandits that prowl through the night." Traveling en masse, a family of raccoons begins its evening of mini larceny. Raiding garbage cans and stripping the apples from the topmost branches of trees these sneaky petes are clearly under the impression that they are villains par excellence. Even when their ramblings are discovered by (highly amused) humans they believe that they're in possession of some pretty choice "loot". And when the sun comes up, the family goes inside to sleep and read some books. "But just until the sun goes down."
