Everyone knows that once a lemur takes a fancy to you, there is not much that can be done about it. That's just what happens to a little boy when a lemur begins to follow him in the park one day, and more of the adoring animals join in. The boy does everything to ditch the playful creatures, from jumping on a train to flying in a hot-air balloon to climbing the highest mountain. But nothing works, and he's lost, too! It's then that his constant companions show just why they make the very best of friends. The parade of lovable lemurs, and the playful illustrations, will have children laughing, reading this again and again, and wishing they could have a pet like that, too.
