"Everyone should knock off work, sit beneath the nearest tree, and enjoy Rascal from cover to cover."—Chicago Tribune From the Trade Paperback edition.
Rascal grew from an unmarked newborn baby to a twenty-five-pound raccoon before he was turned outdoor. He didn’t know he was a raccoon and tried to do what people do. The book contains suspense and many laughs.

Rascal may be the happiest beagle ever to live. He used to live on Voclain’s Farm, with its whole jambalaya of dogs, but now he lives with his very own boy, Meely. Together they explore the Louisiana bayou, bunny chasin’, coon and squirrel huntin’, and crawfishin’. But when Meely gets stuck on a rotting bridge deep in the bayou, it’s up to Rascal—with a little help from his old friends at the farm—to save his boy from danger. In the spirit of Huckleberry Finn, Rascal is a classic coming-of-age story, but from a dog’s perspective. With unforgettable characters, heart-stopping action, and charming black-and-white line drawings that capture it all, this zesty gumbo of a book is one to savor long after it is finished. From the Hardcover edition.

Some things are easier to demonstrate than they are to explain: easier caught than taught. The concept of a unique type of person, affectionately called a Rascal in this book, is a prime example. In the book, we will consider the characteristics of Rascals, noting their greatness and analyzing their behaviors. As we do so, it will be most illustrative to simply observe some representative individuals as a way to shine light on the whole concept. What you may notice while reviewing this gallery of Rascals is the large range of background, circumstances, age, gender, and race they collectively represent which have nothing to do with the concept. Being a Rascal is an outpouring of who a person is on the inside. It is a spirit of willfulness and strength, a dynamic force that drives one forward toward a unique path and contribution. It is authenticity in courageous display. It is life lived on purpose and for a purpose.
Where's Rascal? and A Surprise for Rascal are teaching stories that revolve around an abandoned puppy named Rascal and his two Yorkshire terrier sissies. The stories offer a hint of suspense, fun, laughter, and love. Rascal's questions at the end of each story: • help children to understand their feelings, • offer Bible truths related to each story topic, • and challenge children to ask themselves, 'What would Jesus do in this situation?'
