Description

In 1918 Wisconsin, 11-year-old Sterling North has an almost perfect life. He keeps skunks in the backyard, goes everywhere with his enormous Saint Bernard, and is building a canoe in the living room. The only trouble is life gets a little lonely for him and his father since his mother died. While scouting around the woods one afternoon, he discovers an abandoned, month-old raccoon. Afraid the kit will die on its own, he takes it home to join his menagerie. Soon Sterling and the mischievous raccoon Rascal are sharing one adventure after another, swimming, fishing, and camping. Theirs is an unforgettable friendship-until everything suddenly changes one warm spring day. In this heart-warming classic story, the author shares his irresistible childhood during a simpler time and introduces youngsters to his real-life pals. Sterling and the playful Rascal spring vividly from the pages with narrator Ed Sala's sense of fun and drama.

Professional reviews

"Some audiobooks have star narrators. Others let the narrative itself be the star. RASCAL falls into the second category, and the Newbery Honor book's down-home narrative is as warm and compelling as a long conversation with your best friend. This first-person account tells the story of North's boyhood and his relationship with a raccoon he discovered as an abandoned kit. North, Rascal and North's good-natured St. Bernard, Wowser, bounce from one adventure to the next. Sala could easily be North; his no-nonsense Middle American voice brings this charming animal story to life. M.C. (c) AudioFile, Portland, Maine"
