Sammy Squirrel & Rodney Raccoon: To the Rescue

by Duane Lawrence

Book Image Not Available
Overview

In this second Stanley Park Tale, Sammy Squirrel and Rodney Raccoon, intent on finding their 'crow-napped' bird friend Judy, leave the safety of their park home to search for her in the big, busy city of Vancouver. Encouraged by old park friends like Renee Rabbit and Squirty Skunk, the two woodland creatures step boldly into the unknown. Finding themselves in the heart of the city at the underground Animal Inn and facing mystery and uncertainty at every turn, Sammy and Rodney get help from new friends Ferdinand Fox and Mortimer Mole. The two park dwellers' courage and determination are sharply tested as the search for Judy Crow becomes more challenging than they ever could have imagined.

Description

In this second Stanley Park Tale, best friends Sammy Squirrel and Rodney Raccoon depart on another adventure — this time, through the tunnels below the West End's Sylvia Hotel. In their search for an abducted crow, they are joined by several of their Stanley Park neighbours and encounter many new and quirky friends. This illustrated chapter book features colourful characters and centres in a locale famous for both its natural beauty and urban proximity.
