Children Make Terrible Pets

Children Make Terrible Pets

Check out this bestselling, rollicking, and humorous twist on the classic “first pet” story about a young bear and her favorite pet boy!

When Lucy, a young bear, discovers a boy in the woods, she’s absolutely delighted. She brings him home and begs her mom to let her keep him, even though her mom warns, “Children make terrible pets.” But mom relents, and Lucy gets to name her new pet Squeaker.

Through a series of hilarious and surprising scenes, readers can join Lucy and Squeaker on their day of fun and decide for themselves whether or not children really do make terrible pets.
