Children Make Terrible Pets by Peter Brown

Lucy has made a delightful find: a child! She wants to take him home and make him her pet, even as her mother thinks that this is a bad idea. But Lucy is determined to make things work with Squeaker (as she's named him) and things do go well...for awhile. Will Lucy learn that children make terrible pets?

One word review: delightful. Two word review: adorably illustrated. Hilariously told. Love it. I could go on like this; there's just so much about the book (the illustrations, the storyline, the vocabulary, the look of the book) that adds up to a complete win. Children Make Terrible Pets was on many people's top ten lists of last year, including the New York Times. Definitely check it out and see why.

Find it at IndieBound.
