A Newbery Honor Book
Celebrating 50 years of a beloved classic!
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 suddenly changes.
Rascal is a heartwarming boyhood memoir that continues to find its way into the hearts of readers fifty years later. This special anniversary edition includes the book's classic illustrations restored to their original splendor, as well as a letter from the author's daughter, and material from the illustrator's personal collection.
"Everyone should knock off work, sit beneath the nearest tree, and enjoy Rascal from cover to cover."--Chicago Tribune
