Rascal is a great heartwarming book. At the beginning it was kind of hard to understand. It features a boy named Sterling who at age eleven raises a baby raccoon from the wild named Rascal. Sterling's father lets Sterling do as he pleases, build a canoe in the living room, own skunks, a crow, cats, and muskrats. Sterling and his beloved raccoon have many different experience's together. Sterling then faces a trial of true friendship. It's worth reading for sure

I had a pet raccoon named Sugarfoot as a kid. Hanging out with Sugarfoot was great...watching him duel with a crawdad (also known as playing with your dinner), going to the store with Mom with Sugarfoot peeking out of my pocket with his masked eyes (oh, THAT raccoon!), Sugarfoot perched on my Dad's shoulder as he drove, fishing a cigarette from his shirt pocket for a little snack. Mom woke up with a piercing scream one morning to find Sugarfoot had waddled into their bedroom, tunnelled under the blankets, wrapped himself around her hand, and starting sucking on her finger, his signal that he wanted his bottle. Dad was rolling with laughter. Rascal came out around that time. The book became and remains one of my all-time favorites. In this non fiction reminiscence, Sterling North is home alone with his dad during World War One when Rascal comes into his life. The story follows Rascal and Sterling's adventures until the mature raccoon, after a year of fun, is released into the woods. The success of Rascal led to another book by North, Raccoons Are the Brightest People, based on mail he received by fans of raccoons describing their own experiences with raccoons as pets, house guests, or just visitors coming for an evening feeding.

Fast shipment, great book. This story would interest kids of all ages. I use it for adult ESL students and is a fast, fun read. Disney made this into a movie, but it isn't available on DVD.

The elderly lose their attention span quickly in nursing homes, so books like this are ideal. That was my reason for purchase, and while I'm on a different book right now, I know they will love it.

The book was used, as stated, but in beautiful condition for an old book. I considered buying another one just because the cover and illustrations in this book are so lovely. I would definitely recommend buying this to anyone.

This is one of those rare books, that catches you completely unaware. I bought it as a gift for my grandchildren, but I started reading it and couldn't put it down, I love the authors style and all the great information within!
