2.0 out of 5 stars A bit difficult May 21, 2013
By Tanya
Format:Kindle Edition
I thought the book would be a cute story to share at bedtime with my 2nd & 5th grade daughters. They didn't enjoy it. A lot of the vocabulary was just too advanced for them so I had to stop and explain quite a bit. The vocabulary would be fine for my older girls, but then the story itself would not interest them.If the whole idea of the book is to teach about bullies & relationships to young children, then less complex words would've sufficed.

3.0 out of 5 stars Being Friends with a bully can be a challenge March 24, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
The Adventures of Riley Raccoon by William Trelawny is a book for young readers with a good vocabulary. The story describes the relationship between a bully and a future friend in new surroundings. It also shows several potential consequences and dangers of making wrong choices in order to please others. This book is a useful tool for parents in that it allows for a discussion about safe limits in relationships. It is also a good choice for elementary and middle school readers in a supervised classroom setting where bullying can be discussed in a non-confrontational manner.

4.0 out of 5 stars Smart Brave Raccoon March 3, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
4 STARS
The Adventures of Riley Raccoon is a good childrens novel. Riley is a loner raccoon who wonders the woods by himself than staying and playing with the others.
One day Charlotte moves into the area.
Charlotte is a force to behold she fights all the other raccoon children and wins all the fights. She even makes Riley fight her so she can say she has beaten everyone. Charlotte is a bully but does not see that.
Riley likes her and shows her his three special places he has that no one else knows of them. Charlotte loves them too. She demands that they protect them and comes up with a plan to scare the kits away from them.

I think that this book would be a good one for parents to read and discus the different ideas in this book. It could be used to teach a lot of different things in it from simple ideas to more complex things for older kids.

I was given this book to read and asked to give honest review from author and Librarythings.
