In the ponderosa pine forest on the rim of the Grand Canyon lives Rascal, a tassel-eared squirrel. Rascal's tale reveals the lifeways of tassel-eared squirrels, the sometimes cruel randomness of nature, and the teeming and twittering life of a ponderosa pine forest. Sidebars discuss the many natural things that make up Rascal's world, and Diane Iverson's vivid illustrations jump off the pages, bringing Rascal's story to life. An elegantly crafted tale amidst beautiful illustrations, Rascal, the Tassel-Eared Squirrel will thrill kids of all ages who are interested in the natural world of the Southwest.
