Good book,
Skunks, woodchucks, a crow named Poe, an absent-minded father, an eighteen foot, half-finished canoe in the living roomwelcome to the North home! Nothings surprising at the North residence. Not even eleven-year-old Sterlings 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 adventureswimming, fishing, exploring the countryside togetheruntil the spring day when everything suddenly changes and Sterling realizes he must let Rascal go. This heartwarming and delightful memoir of a boys 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 literatures most captivating and endearing animals.
