About this item

A deeply funny pet story in reverse, this is the tale of a young bear named Lucy and her joy at having her very own pet boy. One day in the forest, she finds a little boy and decides to bring him home and call him Squeakers. Ignoring her mother's warning about children making rotten pets, Lucy keeps him and discovers the truth for herself. With wonderful, humorous illustrations. Chosen by the New York Times Book Review as a 2010 Best Illustrated Children's Book.
When Lucy, a young bear, discovers a boy lost in the woods, she asks her mother if she can have him as a pet, only to find him impossible to train.
