Cute, cute, and cute. That's all I have to say about this one.
Okay, I'll say more. Children Make Terrible Pets is about a little bear girl who finds a little human boy in the woods...and wants to keep him as a pet. She names him Squeaker. Her mother warns her that children make terrible pets...and guess what! It turns out that they do.
Little Boy didn't like this book as much as I did. I think it kinda went over his head. But the illustrations...oh, man. They're adorable. It's worth checking this book out just to see the pictures.

Full disclosure: I don't receive any compensation for reviewing children's books--the books are usually just checked out from the local library.
