Book Look - Children Make Terrible Pets by Peter Brown



In this twisted tale entitled Children Make Terrible Pets, a bear brings a boy home, asking "Can I keep him?" Amusement for the reader will ensue because the child, newly named Squeaker, doesn't really make a good pet and should be returned to his rightful habitat.
