Rascalby Sterling North
Synopses & Reviews
Skunks, woodchucks, a crow named Poe, an absent-minded father, aneighteen foot, half-finished canoe in the living room—welcome to the North home! Nothing's surprising at the North residence. Not even eleven-year-old Sterling's new pet raccoon. Rascal is only a baby when young Sterling brings him home to join his unusual family. The mischievous raccoon and Sterling are partners and best friends for a perfect year of adventure—swimming, fishing, exploring the countryside together—until the spring day when everything suddenly changes and Sterling realizes he must let Rascal go. This heartwarming and delightful memoir of a boy's friendship with a wild animal, and his growing awareness of the world around him, has become a treasured classic. Rascal has taken his place among literature's most captivating and endearing animals.
This classic children's story offers a memorable portrait of a friendship between a boy and a wild animal. "Everyone should knock off work, sit beneath the nearest tree, and enjoy Rascal from cover to cover".--Chicago Tribune.
Who could resist living for a with a raccoon who is just year about your best friend?
In this delightful memoir, Sterling North recalls his year with Rascal — a very mischievous and resourceful raccoon. Sterling, a boy of 11, watches in amazement as this baby raccoon, barely the size of Sterling's hand, instinctively washes everything before eating it. Sterling knows that every night Rascal will sneak into the house by hooking his claws onto the back screen door and head straight for Sterling's bed! Virtually everywhere Sterling goes, Rascal is there, and life is filled with one adventure after another.
This is an unforgettable and touching story of friendship and letting go — an enduring classic.
