Book Trailer Premiere: Dewey Bob By Judy Schachner

Welcome to the world premiere of a minor motion picture about a button lovin’ raccoon and his creator - me - Judy Schachner.
Thanks Mr. Schu, for the debut of DEWEY BOB.

Dewey Bob by Judy Schachner | Dial Books | Release Date: September 8, 2015

A sweet raccoon character stars in this endearing tale of unexpected friendship from the creator of the bestselling Skippyjon Jones

Dewey Bob Crockett is a durn cute raccoon who lives by himself in a house filled to the brim with the wonderful objects he collects. Buttons, wheels, furniture and bricabrac adorn his cozy quarters and keep him busy as he finds and fixes, turning trash into treasures. But there’s something missing from Dewey’s collections—a friend! He tries gathering up some critters and bringing them home in his shopping cart, but that doesn’t work out so well. In the end, a friend does come Dewey’s way, and, with a little DIY help from this clever raccoon, returns again and again.

Combining art and heart with storytelling genius and a lilting twang, Judy Schachner’s tale of unexpected friendship will delight readers young and old. 

Borrow Dewey Bob from your school or public library after September 8, 2015. Whenever possible, please support independent bookshops.
