Publisher's Summary

A compelling coming-of-age adventure from legendary SF master and multiple New York Times best seller Robert A. Heinlein.
Lummox has been the pet of the Stuart family for generations. With eight legs, a thick hide, and increasingly large size, Lummox is nobody's idea of man's best friend. Nevertheless, John Stuart XI, descendant of the starman who originally brought Lummox back to Earth, loves him. But when Lummox eats a neighbor's car and begins to grow again, the feds decide that enough is enough. John isn't about to let the authorities take his pet away, and with his best friend, Betty, he determines to save Lummox - even if he must forever leave the life he's always known.

loved it!

A little predictable, but otherwise large hearted children's story about tolerance, cultural differences, and not judging a book (or alien) at face value.

Fun Heinlein book

the narrator did a superb job of portraying Heinlein's work. The book doesn't age as well as some of his others, but I found it a fun re-read
