Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Wonderful Story This is the kind of book you can read to your children and enjoy it as much as they do. The original title was Rascal: A Memoir of a Better Era and that really says it. I sometimes wonder what a young boy today living his life of play dates and video games and constant monitoring thinks when he reads about Sterling North's boyhood, where all you need is a loved pet, a good book and a comfy tree to sit in. One last thing- I challenge you to not cry at the end. You will lose that challenge.

Editorial Reviews

Everyone should knock off work, sit beneath the nearest tree, and enjoy Rascal from cover to cover. (The Chicago Tribune)
