The Rascal Hardback
by Cecil Aldin
Filled with humor and charm, this heartwarming tale follows a year in the life of a mischievous bulldog puppy entering the social whirl of Edwardian London, as told by the dog himself.
Coupled with brilliant, cheerful illustrations, the loveable hero describes his naughty adventures--and his ability to escape scot-free--becoming the darling of an actress, enjoying the races at Ascot, punting at the Henley Regatta, and holidays in Ostend.
When British virtues lead to the disastrous end of his "high life," the fearless canine discovers the many new joys of country living. Originally published in 1905, this classic romp demonstrates the perennial appeal of Cecil Aldrin's illustrations and stories, for both children and adults alike.
