Book Review: Children Make Terrible Pets

February 10, 2015

Children Make Terrible Pets by Peter Brown
From Miss Angie at Crestview and Plymouth Branches

"Peter Brown introduces a humorous twist on the familiar first pet scenario in his lovable story Children Make Terrible Pets. A young bear named Lucy finds a boy in the woods, and pleads to her mother, “Can I keep him?” After a fair amount of warnings about why children make terrible pets from mother bear, Lucy finds out for herself the calamity that comes along with having a boy for a pet!

"Readers of all ages will delight in the many surprises that erupt from Squeaker the boy and Lucy as they uncover for themselves if children really do make terrible pets!"

Thanks for the great review, Miss Angie! Check out this animated short of the book from Scholastic!
