    Mr. Pippin is certainly a delightful tale about a summer with a baby raccoon. What a delight it is to have a story that explains the life of a baby animal from when he was small enough to sit in the palm of your hand to the day it was called away to the wild from whence he came. It is interesting and funny enough to keep your childs attention while giving them a solid foundation to pull from to understand that wild animals have a home in nature and domestic pets have a home with their owners. Johannahs artwork is delightful for parents and children alike. As with all of her artwork her attention to detail and color is precious. Each page has its own story inside the pictures giving a child, hours of entertainment and sentimental consideration.

    I couldnt wait to receive The Story of Mr. Pippin in the mail. I have had a small taste of Johannah Bluedorns beautiful illustrations from another book I already had. I anticipated that this childrens picture book would be appealing to read and look at. I was not disappointed. I read it to my children and we were all delighted by the story as well as the beautiful illustrations. Johannah is a gifted artist. Her pictures are sweet and innocent and so full of detail that it takes one several times looking at them to take it all in. My children enjoyed the story of the baby raccoon rescued and taken in by Johannahs family . She tells of how this raccoon grows up and gets into mischief. Johannah draws the reader in by asking questions and we enjoyed discussing the possible answers to them. The story ends as Mr. Pippin is ready to leave the family home and survive on his own. We are left wondering what adventures Mr. Pippin would have next. My children especially enjoyed seeing photos at the end of the book showing the real Mr. Pippin. Lucky for us just several days later we were able to see a real raccoon in a neighbors yard and we wondered at the mischief of this raccoon. If you want a sweet story with beautiful pictures I highly recommend The Story of Mr. Pippin. What a great gift idea for a small child!

    This delightful book shares the true story of Mr. Pippin, a raccoon raised by the Bluedorn family, and his adventures while in their care. Exquisite pictures detail each experience as the author shares of her summer with the mischevious raccoon and his subsequent return to the wilderness. This sweetly simple book brought both a smile and a tear as I traveled it's pages. Truly, this book will be a favorite with adults and children alike.

    A baby raccoon is orphaned and finds himself adopted by a gracious young lady. Enjoy the adventure of watching this mischievous little fellow meet and make new friends and grow up during one special summer.All 5 (13 months-11yrs) of my children enjoy this book. Once again Johannah has created a book that is a treasure as well as a joy to read aloud. The story is told in the form of a tender recollection of a special summer. I cannot say enough about the illustrations. Warmth and the sense of tender memories are conveyed on every page. The paintings are detailed with such depth and richness. It is a real treat for nature study, for it is filled with flora and fauna that children and parents will love to admire and identify.

Author/Artist Review

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  Bringing Up Baby

Once upon a time there was a raccoon named Mr. Pippin. . . and so begins the true story of how one happy summer we raised a baby raccoon. Trivium Pursuit is pleased to announce the release of their newest children’s picture book The Story of Mr. Pippin by Johannah Bluedorn. Detailed watercolor paintings bring this tale of love and friendship to life, making the book certain to appeal to children of all ages and to the young at heart.

In award-winning illustrator Johannah Bluedorn’s Tasha Tudor style, Pippin’s early nurturing and later antics are minutely recorded to reveal what it is like to bring up a baby raccoon. Toys and teddies, honey bears and hollyhocks all play a part in Pippin’s pampered childhood, until later, when “the call of his wild home was stronger than his love for us.”

About the author/illustrator: Bluedorn, a self- taught homeschooled artist, won her first art prize at age 14 and published her first book at age 17 . She has illustrated several other children’s books, including Alphabet for Biblical Hebrew, Alphabet for Biblical Greek, Become a Civil War Reenactor, My Mommy, My Teacher, The Lord Builds the House (all published by Trivium Pursuit), and From Dark to Dawn: A Tale of Martin Luther and the Reformation (published by Books on the Path). She also designs and sews 19th and early 20th century costumes and raises Jersey cows and Quarter horses on her family’s farm in New Boston, Illinois.
