Review: Dogs! More dogs! Even more dogs! Rascal: A Dog and His Boy, written by Ken Wells and illustrated by Christian Slade, is a story of a dog and his boy. It is a fun adventure for the whole family you can never stop reading. It is a short book, but it is guaranteed to keep you wanting to read more and more.
Rascal is an almost pure-bred beagle with a little of blue-tick. He lives on a farm with a mass of other dogs and a cat. So one day he gets adopted by a boy who loves critters. Meely (the boy) has had it tough as a kid. His mother died as a small child and his dad moved to Florida. As he finds out his foster parent got him a dog he gets excited. One day they go hunting and Rascal gets lost while chasing a bunny. Will the little puppy get back to his owner?
The book is amazing. It is basically the adventure of a dog and his boy. The book is fun because Rascal is the narrator. It's exciting because action and adventure comes to you. And it's hilarious because Rascal has a humorous personality. The story is good and the characters have different personalities. Rascal: A Dog and His Boy is a family fiction book that's fun for all ages. Rascal: A Dog and His Boy gets 5 out of 5 stars.
