Just a beautiful and wonderful bookas a classic children s book it s a book that adults can also njoy This story of a boy in Wisconsin raising a baby raccoon is a memoir and as such transported me to a time and place long gone And you will never forget Rascal Rascal is an American classic telling the story of how the boy Sterling found a little raccoon in the spring of 1818 and took him on as a pet While it took me a while to get into due to the very old language style and the fact that an adult was writing down memories of his childhood therefore not feeling very much like a child I can see why this is the perfect book for reading in schoolDue to the setting in 1918 and Sterling having a brother fighting in France World War I and its conseuences are described throughout mentioning the loss suffered by the families and also the wartime conomy with God Is in the Crowd evenleven year old Sterling planting and selling his own vegetables The main part of this book however are descriptions of the American and specially Wisconsin flora and fauna Sterling knows a lot himself his Dad teaches him a lot and then there s his passion for observing the world around him My favourite image was that of the osprey On top of all that come two bonus points 1 The lovely raccoon art in the book inspiring you to create your own2 Sterling s love for poetry Nothing is better to teach a young kid how to love poetry than to show him another young kid doing just that I will probably read this a lot of time maybe for the descriptions of the landscape and animals alone In any case Wisconsin could not ask for a better advertisement and I d love to visit it nowThus 5 shiny little stars that Rascal can steal if he wants I came across this book the other day and had a vague remembrance of reading it as a child I njoyed re reading this memoir It has something to offer both children and adults Have you noticed that books written prior to the 1940 s are all set outside Everyone is outside all the time La What sweet sorrow when this tale nded I loved spending time with a boy and his raccoon in bygone days Dad and kids both liked this beautiful book Warm rich kind interesting Historical instructive a time traveling machine Kept kids uiet Kept liked this beautiful book Warm rich kind interesting Historical instructive a time traveling machine Kept kids uiet Kept coming back for There were ineuities and wickednesses happening in that America but there were beauties too beauties that "only an untamed land with a population full of hope ven during the Great War can give usEight year old " an untamed land with a population full of hope Notes for the Everlost even during the Great War can give usEight year old It was funny and clever I liked the part where the bully yells that thing about crazy raccoon Five year old boy Oh well I didn t like this part very much but when his owner says he was carefully picking the cans the shining things at the store Ten year old boy I really loved Rascal He. Nothing's surprising in the North household notven Sterling's new pet raccoon Rascal is only a baby when Sterling brings him home but soon the two are best friends doing When I Moan (Vassi and Seri 1: Russian Stepbrother Romance) everything together until the spring day whenverything su. Was so funny Then I liked how the writer wrote it He wrote in a good way So yes I really do wish that I had No Biggy! encountered Sterling North s autobiographical and 1964 Newbery Honour winning novel Rascal when I was as a twelve year old voracious reader indeed often uite majorly despairing that for far too many children s novels featuring pets thendings often than not seemed to conclude with the animals in uestion Crush It! either dying or needing to beuthanised needing to be killed and often uite horribly and painfully so with of course their generally child or teenaged rstwhile owners left totally and utterly bereft AND TRAUMATISED FOR WHILE AT THE END OF RASCAL traumatised For while at the nd of Rascal Sterling does Deep Listening end up having to release his cherished raccoon back into the wild since Rascal as a sexually mature adult male raccoon is really no longer a suitable pet Rascal most happily and appreciatively simplynds with the scenario of Sterling setting his pet raccoon free to live his life and to also find a mate and not with Rascal turning vicious and dangerous and thus having to be killed or that Rascal is shot by hunters And indeed this to and for me truly does make Rascal oh so much readable agreeable and Bird-by-Bird Gardening enjoyable than forxample a novel such as Wilson Rawls Where the Red Fern Grows where the deaths of the main protagonist s two pet hounds have always been way way too devastating for me and almost deliberately painfully depicted leaving Rascal as a mostly sweetly delightful The Works of Saint Augustine exotic pet tale with annding that is of course
also a trifle 
a trifle as Sterling does have to relinuish his raccoon but ultimately a conclusion both happy and yes also appropriate for One pleasant afternoon in 1918 Unbuttoning the CEO (The Suits Undone eleven year old Sterling North along with his Saint Bernard Wowser and friend Oscar Sunderland were in Wentworth s woods There in the hollow base of a rotten stump hid a mother raccoon and her litter of four kits Angered and frightened by Wowser s intrusive digging mother and kits darted to safety but not before Oscar was able to capture one of the kits in his knit cap On that May 15th day young Sterling had no idea that this incident would mark the beginning a very unusual and special friendship A friendship filled with irresistibly shiny things strawberry pop sweet corn music crayfish and a no good rotten bully by the name of Slammy Stillman The next twelve months would be a year that young Sterling would never forget Ra I read this as a kid didn t really appreciate it since it was pretty much like my own childhood in many waysven though mine took place about 50 years later Reading it now in this age of child repression helicopter parents restrictive laws is both a treat terribly sad My grandson will never know the freedom that we hadThe year this was publ.
