Summary, etc.: Francine Poulet is the greatest Animal Control Officer in Gizzford County. She hails from a long line of Animal Control Officers. She's battled snakes, outwitted squirrels, and stared down a bear. "The genuine article", Francine's dad always called her. She is never scared ... until, that is, she's faced with a screaming raccoon that may or may not be a ghost. Maybe Francine isn't cut out to be an Animal Control Officer after all! But the raccoon is still on the loose, and the folks on Deckawoo Drive need Francine back. Can she face her fears, round up the raccoon, and return to the ranks of Animal Control?

    McInerney ably captures the quirkiness of the characters in this charming tale of an animal-control officer whose confidence is shaken after an encounter with the screeching "ghost" of a raccoon. The voice of Francine is as solid as her character, and the bejeweled Mrs. Bissinger sounds perfectly snooty. The toupee-wearing chairman of the board of the animal-control center has a pinched and nasal voice. When the children of Deckawoo Drive arrive to help Francine overcome her fear and face down the raccoon, McInerney's talent really shines. Stella's youthful voice is plaintive when trying to wrap her head around a store, even a bait shop, that doesn't sell candy. Frank's voice is chronically anxious, even as he delivers the pep talk that Francine needs. Fans of DiCamillo's early chapter books will not be disappointed by the latest addition to the Tales of Deckawoo Drive. Grades 1-4. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
