How The Raccoon Got His Mask



By Tomas Urbina & Malika Pannek

Have you ever seen a raccoon before? They don’t like to be seen very much. So they sleep during the day and walk around at night. And if you look at their faces, it looks like they’re wearing masks. Have you noticed that?
But, you know, they didn’t always look that way. They didn’t always have masks. And they didn’t always come out at night. It all started a long time ago with one little raccoon named Rudy.

Part 1

Back then, the raccoons lived in the forest not in the city.
Rudy’s family lived in a giant oak tree deep in the forest with several other families. His mother told him the tree had been there for hundreds of years.
All the trees were much bigger back then and some were even taller than the skyscrapers in cities today.

Part 2

For the longest time, Rudy spent his days exploring the forest and playing nutball with his best friend, Sunny.
Whenever they got hungry, they could always stop for a snack.
“Do you like bugs?” asked Sunny.
“I like everything!”

Part 3

But food was getting harder to find since the bears and the wolves moved into the neighbourwood. There was enough food in the forest to go around, but with the big animals out there it just wasn’t safe.
