Purchased between 1994-1998 in Ohio (maybe school book fair?). It is a small, paperback, children’s picture book. A young raccoon is at a park (maybe with his mom) and there are leftovers from a picnic. He tries to get an olive out of a jar, but it results in a “monkey trap” situation. I think people start coming his way and he realizes he must let go of the olive to get free. He lets go of the olive and scurries away to safety.
