North's story of his raccoon, Rascal, and their year together holds as much delight today as it has for many years. Weiss uses his natural talent as a professional storyteller to weave the many emotions of humans and animals into this alluring and nostalgic tale. His enjoyment of the text seems to spontaneously infect the listener with enthusiasm while capturing the quiet peace and contentment found in North's remembrance. His Irish and German accents, used for some secondary male characters, sound realistic, while his softened voice and controlled tones serve well for female voices. A remarkable classic tale offers pleasant listening. P.A.J. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 99]
