The Totally Ninja Raccoons Meet the Little Green Men Is Here
Kevin Coolidge of Wellsboro has just released "The Totally Ninja Raccoons Meet the Little Green Men,” the seventh book in his Totally Ninja Raccoon series. It is set at Cherry Springs State Park in Potter County, Pa.
The first six books in Coolidge’s series are set in Wellsboro and Tioga County, Pa. The first, “The Totally Ninja Raccoons Meet Bigfoot,” released on Dec. 11, 2015, is about the three raccoon brothers who become ninjas. “The series is for the 7 to 10-year-old reluctant reader who loves action, adventure and creatures whose existence has yet to be proven, like Bigfoot,” said Coolidge.
In his second book, the raccoons meet the “Weird & Wacky Werewolf;” in the third, they learn “The Secret of the Canyon,” in the fourth, meet “The Thunderbird,” in the fifth are involved in “The Catmas Caper” and in the sixth, learn the “Secret of Nessmuk Lake." The second and fifth books were released between March 1 and Oct. 26, 2016, the six on May 2 and the seventh on November 13th, 2017.
In each book, the ninja raccoons learn important life lessons. In the first book, the raccoons discover they are not meant to be ordinary bandits, but rather have the potential to be something extraordinary--ninjas. They begin their ninja training and meet their first potential employer--Gypsy the Cat.
In Coolidge’s latest book, the raccoon brothers continue their ninja training, learn the power of forgiveness, and meet creatures from out of this world, aliens. The Cat Board plots against the raccoons as they explore the park. Will the cats trash the raccoons? Will the little green men find the perfect pet? Will Rascal make French toast?
During the day, Coolidge can be found at From My Shelf Books & Gifts, an independent bookstore he runs with his wife, several helpful employees, and two friendly black and white cats, Huck and Finn. He is there after hours, too, writing books. He is working on his eighth Totally Ninja Raccoons book now.
