Keep Your Eye on Amanda!

Written by Avi
Illustrated by Tim Bush

Philip and Amanda, twin raccoons, live in Boulder, Colorado. Philip is a worrier and cautious by nature. Amanda is a hip, fast-talking mischief-maker who is constantly getting into trouble. When Amanda, looking for fun, joins up with a human thief, Philip is determined to save her and bring her to a sense of responsibility. To do so he enlists the animals of Boulder Creek Parkā€”as well as an old locomotive. With steam blowing, whistles tooting, and shotguns blasting, they go after Amanda. The question is, will they get to her in time to keep Amanda from becoming a real criminal?
