In this fresh and funny picture book, Lucy, a young bear, discovers a lost boy in the woods, and she thinks she's found the most adorable, cutest pet ever. She brings him home, and begs her mom to keep him, even though her mom tells her that "children make terrible pets." She names him Squeaker, and the two go through a humorous sequence of events: playing, napping, litterbox training (okay, maybe that's not fun!) and all other sorts of shenanigans. But then Squeaker suddenly goes missing. Lucy is heartbroken and looks for him everywhere. Finally, she finds him back with his own family, and she makes the tough decision to let him stay where he belongs.
Bestselling author Peter Brown is back with a side-splitting and endlessly adorable story, illustrated in a striking and fun art style.
