This book is about a raccoon named Chester. Chester wanted to stay home with his Mom, but Chester's Mom said no. Chester did not want to go to school because he was afraid. Chester goes to school at night because he is a raccoon. Chester's Mom told Chester she knew a wonderful secret and Chester said, "What kind of secret?" You should read this book to find out if Chester goes to school. There is a special secret on the last page.

Our favorite page is the last page because we use that hand sign for love with our parents every day. If you like animals, you should read this book.
