A compelling coming-of-age adventure from legendary SF master and multiple New York Times bestseller 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.

    " This book was really long.There were really small words and a lot of pages.This book was very interesting and had a lot of information.I liked how this book had two stories that were going on at once and they came together at the end.The ending was different than what I had thought it would be like but it was still very good.

    " A boy with a pet alien, and they almost cause an interstellar war. Material for at great short story og novella, but unfortunately the author drags the story on and on, with endless discussions between lawyers and politicians. Too much talk, not enough adventure. I wouldn't recommend it to my son. "
