REVIEW: Rascal by Jean-Luc Deglin
Rascal is a cat. My cat. I didn’t ask for him, he just sort of… happened to me. But that’s how it works sometimes, isn’t it?
When a mysterious mewling package arrives in the mail, one busy young woman’s life changes forever. Rascal lives up to his name, filling every day with wild adventures and long naps: brave expeditions into closets, fierce battles with curtains, and wrestling with slumbering giants… Sometimes she’s tempted to throw him out the window. He’s lucky he’s cute.
Jean-Luc Deglin paints a purring portrait of one unforgettable black cat, an elegant inky swirl in a world of striking blue tones. Hilarious and heartwarming, exasperating and enchanting, Rascal captures the full range of emotions that come with keeping God’s cutest killing machine as a pet.
If you love cats, or dream of having one, this book is dedicated to you. Once you bring Rascal into your life, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without him.
Ah yes, this is what it’s like to live with a cat. Note I don’t say own a cat as cats think of humans as staff. Sometimes they’re adorable, sometimes they’re inscrutable, and sometimes you wonder why you put up with them. Then they do something cute again and you remember why. Despite being small and portable, they truly do rule the roost and run the show. I wouldn’t live without one. B+
