A little over my students' heads, but it got a few giggles. Not as good as Chowder, though.

I often recommend this title as well as other Peter Brown titles for patrons who are going to be a guest or mystery reader for an elementary school class. The story is funny and sweet, and the illustrations are fantastic.

The moral may be a bit obvious, but in a storytime it's a good counterpoint to the bleak awesomeness of I Want My Hat Back.

I guess I just don't "get" this author the way I do others. The illustrations were still nice (very cool that parts were done with construction paper), but I feel the whole moral of the story gets laid on a bit too thick. Still a decent book, but will never hit my favourites list.

Cute book! The illustrations give it a retro feel.

This is a great book warning bears that adopting a human child as a pet is fraught with danger. They are messy, untrainable and tend to return to their families without warning.

A funny book that would be a great way to teach point of view and inferencing.
