Rascal: A Dog and His Boy

Rascal: A Dog and His Boy Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Rascal may be the happiest beagle ever to live. He used to live on Voclain’s Farm, with its whole jambalaya of dogs, but now he lives with his very own boy, Meely. Together they explore the Louisiana bayou, bunny chasin’, coon and squirrel huntin’, and crawfishin’. But when Meely gets stuck on a rotting bridge deep in the bayou, it’s up to Rascal—with a little help from his old friends at the farm—to save his boy from danger.

In the spirit of Huckleberry Finn, Rascal is a classic coming-of-age story, but from a dog’s perspective. With unforgettable characters, heart-stopping action, and charming black-and-white line drawings that capture it all, this zesty gumbo of a book is one to savor long after it is finished.

Synopsis:

Inn the spirit of Huck Finn, "Rascal" is a classic coming-of-age story, but told from a dog's perspective. Illustrations.

About the Author

KEN WELLS grew up on the banks of Bayou Black, in south Louisiana’s Cajun country, on a farm where he and his five brothers romped with a dozen or so mostly adopted dogs, including a spectacular beagle named Tootie and a goodly number of barn cats. For a while, his family even kept a pet monkey.

Wells, a career journalist, is the author of six previous books, including Meely LaBauve, a coming-of-age story that was an American Library Association Best Book for Young Adults. Wells lives in New York City with his wife, Lisa Newmark. They have two grown daughters, Sara and Rebecca.
