Submitter: In weeding our adult, non-fiction shelves, I came across this awkward, disconcerting title. The picture isn’t pleasant either, but it’s the word “people” that caused a lack of circulation.
Holly: This might be the best book ever about raccoons, but I have to agree with the submitter that it is an odd title. Maybe raccoons are very bright animals, but they’re not people. Also, the guy on the cover (is that Sterling North?) has a very large head.
