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 economy with even eleven year old Sterling planting and selling his own vegetables The main part of this book however are descriptions of the American and especially 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

Memoir of eBook #8608 Nothing's surprising in the North household not even Sterling's new pet raccoon Rascal is only a baby when Sterling brings him home but soon the two are best friends doing everything together until the spring day when everything sudde. I read this as a kid didn't really appreciate it since it was pretty much like my own childhood in many ways even 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 published was about the first time my cousins I were getting dragged home after dangerously riding the tide out of the marshes on Long Island's north shore into the Sound miles away A decade later we built our own kayaks although it was a barn project with fiberglass chicken wire that we bought with money we made doing chores on the surrounding farms in MD Good times I didn't appreciate them enoughThe story of this coon was great My uncle raised several at about a year old he always turned them loose as they got pretty mean They were never as nice as Rascal but pretty close We never gave them the amount of attention he got The void Rascal filled in Sterling's life the final sorrow was very well done I also loved reading about the farm timesIt's set in 1918 has some great views about WWI in which Sterling's older brother fought This book is probably somewhere between fiction nonfiction so I've shelved it accordingly There was a Rascal a canvas canoe a lot that was true Some names were changed Sterling's sister doesn't fully agree with his take on the family I'm sure much of the story was made up of bits pieces which are true enough too His descriptions of the countryside a boy's rambling through them was just too perfect not to be trueHighly recommended for all ages This edition was wonderfully narrated
