Everyone should knock off work, sit beneath the nearest tree, and enjoy Rascal from cover to cover. -- Chicago Tribune
From the Inside Flap

Who could resist living for a year with a raccoon who is just 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 text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Sterling North's most profound observation: "Somewhere it must all be recorded, as insects are captured in amber - that day on the river: transcribed in Brule (river) water, written on the autumn air, safe at least in my memory." And if it is not there, on the river Brule in Wisconsin, then reading, "Rascal - A Memoir Of A Better Era," must be read and reread by all.
My daughters reading level is way beyond her grade (5thgrade) so I have to find books that fit her maturity level age 11 - in a high school/college Lexile.
Thats why we order the books we do- they are NOT in her Elementary school and we have to find and use Amazon to buy all her Lexile Required Reading. This book would be in a Middle and High School Library.
