Who could resist living for a year with a raccoon who is just about your best friend?

In this delightful memoir, Sterling North recalls his year with Rascal--a very mischievous and resourceful raccoon. Sterling, a boy of 11, watches in amazement as this baby raccoon, barely the size of Sterling's hand, instinctively washes everything before eating it. Sterling knows that every night Rascal will sneak into the house by hooking his claws onto the back screen door and head straight for Sterling's bed! Virtually everywhere Sterling goes, Rascal is there, and life is filled with one adventure after another.

About the Author:

Sterling North was born into a family of poets and was himself first published at age eight. He went on to have a career as a journalist and literary editor of several well-respected newspapers.  Sterling North won a host of literary awards during his lifetime, including a Newbery Honor for the autobiographical Rascal.
