On Friday, July 1 at 11:30 a.m., McKay Campbell, 10, his sister Lynnae, 12, and mom Kelly stopped in at From My Shelf Books & Gifts at 7 East Avenue in Wellsboro to talk to owner and author Kevin Coolidge, pick up free passports to participate in the Totally Ninja Raccoons hunt that began that day and to purchase five of the nine “Totally Ninja Raccoons” books to complete the series for McKay.

“When we learned about the hunt, McKay said he wanted to do it,” Kelly said. The family lives in Williamsport.

“We found the raccoons at 18 of the 25 locations in Wellsboro and will return to find the last 7 before the hunt ends,” said Kelly.

“My daughter and I really enjoyed searching for the raccoons, too. McKay and Lynnae challenged each other to see who could find the raccoons first.

“This was a good family activity for all of us that didn’t cost anything, encourages reading and has great prizes so it’s all good,” Kelly said.

For the third year in a row, the bookstore is hosting the hunt for the ninja raccoon brothers from July 1 to July 30 at 25 participating Wellsboro area businesses. Anyone of any age, children to adults, can participate.

The raccoons are the stars of Coolidge’s “Totally Ninja Raccoons” book series for 7- to 10-year-old reluctant readers.

Each participating location has free passports. All information about the hunt is included.

“When the ninja raccoons are found, the store must sign or stamp the participant’s passport in order for his or her tickets to be placed in the prize jar,” said Kasey Coolidge, bookstore manager.

“All passports must be turned in at the bookstore no later than 6 p.m. on Saturday, July 30 to be eligible for prizes.

“We will draw for prizes live at 1 p.m. on Sunday, July 31 via our From My Shelf Books & Gifts Facebook page,” she said. Winners need not be present to win.
Prizes include $100 in cash, gift certificates and items donated by participating businesses, a variety of books, and Wellsboro Chamber Dollars.

For more information, call the bookstore at (570) 724-5793.
