Synopsis

Albert's Raccoon by Karen Wallace

Albert's new pet, Rocky the raccoon, can't resist interfering with anything mechanical. He turns the toaster into a spaghetti machine, and the washing-machine into a scrambled-egg maker. Albert's parents are not impressed - the raccoon must go! Then Albert smuggles Rocky into his father's sweet factory - on the very day Mr Caramel Chew, owner of the world's largest chain of sweetshops, is coming on an inspection. The raccoon gets into the control room, and suddenly the machines are making peppermint lizards and sugary green frogs instead of gobstoppers and toffees. Albert and his father are horrified...but Mr Caramel Chew loves them, and orders a million of each.

About the Author

Karen Wallace

I was born in Canada and grew up in a log cabin in Quebec. My childhood was spent playing in the forests and messing about on the Gatineau River. It was a wonderful wild time and in many ways is the source of all of my writing. Children's writers are an eccentric bunch. Someone once said they never grow up and in many ways, this is probably true in my case.
I write books for children from five to fifteen years old. The ability to recall how you felt and what your world was like at a particular point in your childhood is something that all children's writers share. It's like pushing a rewind switch and going back in time. Many of my natural history books for children, like THINK OF AN EEL, which won awards on both sides of the Atlantic, IMAGINE YOU ARE A TIGER, or I AM A TYRANNOSAURUS REX all reflect my own sense of wonder exploring the woods and the river around me when I was a child. Years later, I wrote about this childhood in my first novel RASPBERRIES ON THE YANGTZE, which was shortlisted for the Guardian Fiction Prize.
