NaturalKids Book Review

Children Make Terrible Pets
By Peter Brown

This new release from author Illustrator Peter Brown is a wonderful read. I’m a big fan of his Chowder books, and his first book Fight Of The Dodo. They are all funny and charming, and his illustrations speak just as much as the text.

This book stars Lucy a very adorable bear who discovers a little secret admirer while practicing her twirls in the woods. She decides to make him her pet and takes him home and names him Squeaker. She feeds, plays with, takes a nap with, and even tries to potty train Squeaker. When Squeaker goes missing , she looks for him high and low, and finally finds him picnicking with his family. Saddened by having to say good bye to her friend she talks to her mother who comforts her and teaches her that having a little human boy for a pet was not a good idea. don’t worry she finds a good replacement at the end.

This is a great picture book for children 3 and up. The Illustrations are not as lush as his other books, its more brown and earthy, but they fit the story and are just as beautiful.  a great book to curl up and read to your kids under a warm blanket. I assure you that when you read this book you will go to your local library or book store and look for his other selections.
