In this heart-warming classic story, the author shares his irresistible childhood during a simpler time and introduces youngsters to his real-life pals. Sterling and the playful Rascal spring vividly from the pages with narrator Ed Sala's sense of fun and drama.

Sterling North was born around the same year as my grandmother, 1906. She was one of eight children and two of her brothers fought in WWI "The War to End all Wars" in the Navy on the same ship. I have always been interested in what it might have been like during the time she grew up as a child. This doesn't get close to her life except in that Sterling had a brother fighting in Europe and that he also got sick with the Spanish Flu. I remember my grandmother saying that her family was spread out around the world during the Spanish Flu pandemic and that they were lucky that not one of them died from it. Both things I remember my grandmother talking about. This story read by Ed Sala is one of the best audio books I've listened to. My twin boys listened to it when they were about five and really enjoyed it.
