One of my favorite books as a kid was Rascal, written by Sterling North. Not only was it a good story about a boy and an orphaned raccoon, its setting was nearby Edgerton, the Rock River, and Lake Koshkonong.

We recently lived the story of Rascal. Our orphaned raccoon was named Buster Snicklefartz.
This little critter was loads of fun while being the biggest pain in the patoot on the planet. It is little wonder that none of the many animal rehab places that we contacted wanted a young Buster Snicklefartz.
We just finished watching the Disney production of Rascal.
We will miss her and not.
