I look up at all the cozy windows and wonder what it would be like to live with creature comforts . . . to be a real pet. Most of all I would like to have a name, instead of just that pesky rat.A glamorous life in the lap of luxury like Pierre the chinchilla would bevery nice. But really, our heros not that fussy - he just wants to belong to somebody. With his cute, pointy brown face and beady eyes, why cant he get someone to take him home? Even a notice posted at the local pet store seems fruitless, until one day a nearsighted old man stops in and speaks the amazing words: Ill take him. After all, he says, hes been looking for ages for a brown cat as nice as this.In her latest tour de force, acclaimed author-illustrator Lauren Child introduces a surprisingly endearing character, and assures young readers theres enough love for all of us.
