Children Make Terrible Pets
by Peter Brown
When Lucy the Bear finds a cute critter in the forest, she takes him home with her. She's convinced that Squeaker will make the best pet ever. She soon finds out that little boys are impossible to train.
The author makes good use of word balloons to tell his story, and his hilarious illustrations are very appealing. Where else could you find a bear in a tutu? I also liked Lucy's kangaroo outfit!
