Lucy, a bear, really wants to keep the little boy she finds in the woods, but her mother has reservations. "Children make terrible pets," she warns. But Lucy persists and is permitted to keep her pet boy, whom she names Squeakers. The result? A whirlwind of adventures — fun and not so fun — for Lucy and Squeakers. Clever and heartwarming, Children Make Terrible Pets will delight youngsters.
Bottom line: A clever twist on a familiar experience.
