Farewell to Shady Glade

I always had a thing for animals. My favorite book in the whole world was Farewell to Shady Glade (1966). It chronicled a small group of critters, led by a world-weary raccoon, searching for a new home after their old one gets bulldozed. Farewell is one of over 30 children's books beautifully written and illustrated by Bill Peet, who died in 2002. I never got to thank him.
